This is so true. Got a 3k refund. Doubt I'll get 3k in bonuses

I know that technically I should change my W-4, but it's hard to deny the psychology of the fat tax refund. And I already save over 50% of gross too.

Sad given bonuses at PwC last year.

🤑 out homie

BAH is jelly of our pathetic bonuses

What does the Investor Relations career path look like for someone coming in at an early-ish level? I’ve heard it’s kind of dead-end and doesn’t really teach you any hard skills but pretty easy, especially if you can produce a decent track record of fundraising. Also, I’ve heard comp is ok and typically lower than consulting (and WAY lower than the investment teams…) and mostly concentrated among the top dogs. Accurate? Anyone know people who took this path?
