Entry-level in Mergers & Acquisitions | Chicago, IL | 2018 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Salary & Benefits Review

It is mandatory to take all of your vacation time (15 days per year). If you do not take all of your vacation days, the MDs/Directors/VPs take a pay-cut, which really helps to align incentives

Partner/Principal in Corporate Finance | Chicago, IL | 2018 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Salary & Benefits Review

We are paid 100% of the profits of the firm in cash, every year. No stock, vesting or clawback.
The concept of 100% medical coverage doesn’t apply to a partnership.
No one partner or group of partners owns a disproportionate share of the equity, it’s distributed according to productivity.
There are no worst aspects.
