I’m a 28 y/o associate in a non-IBD FO role in NYC making 110k all in and I feel like I’m lagging behind my peers in my age group... what were you making at 28? Thinking if I should look elsewhere...

Okay so don’t completely match yourself to your peers. IBD roles will always lead by their salary but then again everybody has a different career route. I’m 26 IBD and in UK and make slightly less than 100k all in. I got in late, compare yourself to where you were a year ago, and plan for the next year. Look inside and elsewhere at that. Good luck mate

I am not sure why age is tied to this number, I would think of the career opportunity, I am 35 and I am managing someone who I just hired with total ic 35k more, I got an adjustment but the new person is 3 years older than me and doesn’t have my role. Ic should be looked in conjunction with opportunities

28. $275k (all-in). NYC. Yes, the $$$ is big in IB but there are often tremendous trade offs.

I’m exactly in the same boat as you OP. Let’s get a coffee and discuss possible avenues :)

What would happen if someone was interviewing for a role and accidentally passed gas, but otherwise crushed the interview? Has anyone experienced this before? No clue what I’d do as the interviewer
