You'll make plenty of money in PE, take the vacation. Go somewhere cool, you've earned it


Normally would say fbgm, but UBS is kinda right. But like.. FBGM


How big is the bonus


I mean less than a months vacay is pretty long too. A 3 week vacation is plenty of time to see a buncha shit, and you get the middle bucket bonus like you mentioned. Just my 2 cents. Congrats on the mega fund offer too.


Is BSchool next? If so take the money and travel around BSchool


Let's call it a middle bucket second year analyst bonus. Your guess of what that will be next year is as good as mine

Careful- the terms of your employment letter with the MF likely require you to finish out your full 2 years. I tried to pull this same thing off given they changed our bonus schedule but no dice

They don't in my case Citi 2
