C2: Monitor? Haven’t heard that term for a long time. They changed to D S&O because D brand is stronger. Monitor are a joke. They were so broke when D bought them they couldn’t even afford the rent on their Cambridge, MA headquarters.

Based on Comp ATK / LEK/ s& / Deloitte Ow and Parthenon

For Parthenon... Base - yes, not all in. All-in gets to 200k. For the others all in gets closer to 220-240 (w/o starting bonus)

I would not. I would focus on something more like: how do we create long-term shareholder value.

See you have your priorities

Trying to decide between two portfolio ops roles, both in the Bay Area: Small-ish VC firm, ~135k base + 35k bonus Medium PE firm, ~115k base + 115k bonus Which would you choose? I’m leaning towards the PE firm bc it’s more hands-on, faster learning curve, and higher TC, but the VC role seems to have a better WLB and generally sounds cooler (getting exposed to VC vs continuing in the corporate world). What do you think?
