HL comp is no where near AM

likesmart

Thanks, mostly looking to see where FDD folks have left to after working at these firms. I know comp is potentially higher at A&M but I’m sure people have compelling reasons why they are at one firm over another.

In general, F100 prefers the B4 brand name. Beyond that, exit ops should be very similar.

D2 response killed me “tell me you don’t know HL without telling me” 😂😂😂. Agree with all the other comments, if you are in B4 for a couple years you will have a strong network to industry.

Seems like a lot of questions on partner comp and net worth. Here is the rule of thumb: 1) Big 4 partners make $600K to $1.5m based on seniority and practice. 2) MBB partners make $1m -3m based on seniority Typically your expenses are between $100-300k. Add Taxes to it, that’s the amount you add every year. About 6-10% return yearly on the savings. So net worth of partners are probably between $3m to $20m depending on which company and seniority, investment profile, etc. Where am I wrong?

Looking for advice here! I got referrals from the rooftop slushee app for several companies. I got my resume reviewed by two professional coaches and I hit all the qualifications for the role. But I keep getting rejects and my resume isn’t gettting picked up. Is it because of the competition? I’m at loss as to how to proceed! I’ve been on the job hunt for 4 months now with no end in sight! Any advice is greatly appreciated! Thank you!
