None of those are “buy side” but bonuses are highly performance-dependent.

performance and seniority-dependent

Highly variable but I assume we're talking about head traders - I've seen pay range from 1mil to 6mil at these firms, typically for 10 or more years experience but I've seen these numbers in people as young as 5 years in. This is for Optiver/DRW, no idea on Jane Street but I'd assume similar / lower upside (but maybe better partner level pay? can only speculate, they made more $$$ as a firm than DRW and Optiver combined in 2021)

What are my options here so that I’m not out of pocket?

Current MBA student struggling with choosing between internship offers - both are very similar in size but is one focused more in the tech space (slightly stronger rep and I like the team a little better) and the other more industrial / non-tech services (I will likely want to end up at a fund that focuses in this space after MBA). I would like to end up in a different geography than where these firms are after MBA so which is better for FT recruiting - stronger name or more relevant industry?

PE investment 🐠, how often do you do CDDs to actually diligence the asset and you would be happy if the report is not fully positive vs. you have already decided to acquire the asset and just need a positive report to convince the IC and lenders?

Do PE companies know that many CDD partners would make their team’s life miserable if the story is not positive because they think investment teams won’t work with them as often if they raise red flags? All T2 firms do it, many MBB partners do it too.
