Consulting

Partners, why do you purposefully do not disclose details regarding partner compensation (structure, pay level, etc.)? Is it a cultural thing?

There are partners that make $400k while others make over $1m. Imagine explaining that to a bunch of people who think they’re demigods...

No worries P1- I was only half serious aboutthis all. Just happy to have more willingness for transparency more than anything else. Case closed😃

Internally, at least to SMs and Ms who ask, I’ve found Principals to be pretty open about it. It is more complex than a simple $X comp explanation though. Weird financing, contributing to firm capital, draws, tax cliffs...many things that just don’t exist with a salary/bonus structure. A real thorough explanation of Principal comp is probably a multi-hour presentation (which is actually given to Principal candidates).

Here is the thing. I’m happy to have a private conversation with individuals, but I’m not sharing a general public statement on comp. It’s gauche. Reach out to a partner you know and ask to describe it and have a private conversation. G

Saying “gauche” is, in and of itself, gauche.

I don’t know about you but at the new hire training the partners had a QA and someone asked how much they get paid and they explained it all. I think you just gotta talk to the right partners. New partners make 400-500k and some make 1m and some make even more.

I kind of want to buy an apartment in NYC to take advantage of low interest rates. Targeting $1.2-$1.5M in Greenwich village. I’ve been a nomad for a long time and want to put down some roots here despite not being sure if I will be in NYC forever. I love the city and am bullish on it long term. Thoughts?
