Would be interested in hearing specific examples from your VP. I like the caliber of the people and think the culture is great. Life / balance is much better than IB and people actually respect your time as long as you are doing a good job. Maybe he didn't like the work in BAAM? It is different than any other group in BX, with a focus on fund of funds and secondary PE trades. I can't really speak to the portfolio management teams either, but being on the investment side has been great.

A VP on my team came from BAAM. Says the culture there is "brutal" and that everyone there hates each other.

A&M folks - what is a realistic expectation for 1Y and 2Y at SA level in PEPI?

Seeing offers at 130k vs B4 which is floating around 165k. Looking at TC at B4 with bonus being around 200k. I like the work & culture a lot more at A&M but base comp concerns me. We've all seen people flexing their bonuses but I'm looking for honest level setting (older w/ family) since you'd have to hit 50% to get close. Can anyone provide a little more insight? Maybe TC & utilization? Thanks!

I’m a Deloitte alumni. The attached image is on brand. While there are pockets of excellence & collegial respect at D - overall, D culture is toxic, particularly for people of color, Black people, & non-binary people. So, if you fall in any one of those groups, & you are told/wondering if you are being “sensitive” or “overreacting” to what you’re seeing,hearing, & sensing-I can assure you that you aren’t. Get what you can from the firm (experiences/certs) & pivot to something better.
