Are you talking about big tech companies? At the startup/mid sized end of the spectrum, comp is generally equal or lower

Just to give background, I work within the valuation group in deals. Don't do the Monday to Thursday travels and pretty good on the quant aspect. Interactions with the clients is on a daily basis , just that it is not face to face
