The instability of working for a non-big 4 firm makes me nervous

Depends... Managing Director at a firm like Captech can be equivalent to Senior Manager or similar in larger firms. If the compensation is base and not bonus and the firm is not heavy staff aug / role based then it could be worth strong consideration. I would not necessarily count on bonuses at smaller firms.

Do you have any idea on salary band for a MD at Captech in DC area?

Need opinions: lender services vs a lower MM M&A IB (deal value 60m to 200m/ebitda generally up to 25m) role. I’ve been wanting to pivot to finance for a while now but not sure if going the LMM route sets me up better than just staying in TAS and waiting for a role in ABS/private credit. Short term comp is less of a concern for me since I’m thinking of this LMM IB as a stepping stone move.

But I have noticed that this has caused a lot of serious issues for our relationship. any advice?

MD or MBA? I got into both. I know most will say choose the MD, but hear me out: MD: I'd have to go into a specialty to have a good IRR given my salary & the $200K+ debt. By the time I'd be done with residency the US may be in a single payer system. US doctors make 3x the amount in France and 2x vs UK.. I currently make what a doctor makes in France. That could be the future here, too. MBA: 1 yr. Europe. I'd make about 15-20% more vs. now.

But sometimes it bothers me knowing that I could leave and get a significant raise. Reading fishbowl it seems like everyone chases money regardless of how happy they are currently
