I am expecting an offer from Morgan Stanley in Chicago. It’s an AVP role in Compliance. What should my salary expectations be? Would I be crazy to think I could make $115k+ base?

For the love of god, please don’t let them know your salary expectations are only 115

For an AVP anywhere, $115k base seems really low. I’m a Director and make +170k base. Have you done any research on Glassdoor or Levels?

ED in Compliance here…. 115k base as an AVP in Compliance is achievable, assuming you have at least some relevant experience (3-5 years). Top end of the AVP range is going to be ~125k-130k.

AVP in a big finance company! I would think $115k is the signing bonus. Fresh engineering graduates are asking that much.

AVP can make close to $120k to $130k depending on which division you work at MS.I am currently working as a consultant there and $115k is very reasonable…it should start tapering from $130kish ..

AVP at citi generally caps at 134k. I would be asking for something closer to 130k

DE1,calm down..This is compliance(back office operations type of role)..pay is huge for Investment bankers/Macro strategists/Complex financial products structures etc..pay scale varies significantly between Business,operations ,technology and various divisions within the bank..

No not 115k. Much higher is my guess

115k base is reasonable however, with recent adjustments in pay scale across the banks, I’d ask for much more and have them come back with 135 ish

Accepted a job yesterday and received an entirely unexpected offer that I would much rather take, as it is in the area of law I want to practice and has the mentorship I’m lacking at my current job.

I feel awful but at the same time, don’t want to waste even more of their time if it’s not a job I like. How bad is going back on an accepted offer?
