$40k for class of 2000 and $30k for class of 2002:

http://www.abovethelaw.com/2006/09/skaddenfreude_in_a_league_of_i.php

Granted some firms like Wilson Sonsini pay bonuses during the year also, but I think those are more like $4k, if even that much.

i meant over all associates in all offices, adjusting for col, they arent anywhere near the top. if you dont adjust for col, wachtell is still only middling since london branches are superior.

among only nyc firms, they are above average. however the salary number is an average across all associates I believe so it is biased towards smaller firms.

edit: additionally that bit of a premium wlrk seems to pay over nyc firms in per hour salary is less than you could make by working at a pizzeria at night part-time.

I don't think they are tops in pay per hour. That list bears that out.

Subject: Public figure

My New Flame Schtick: Thanks for the "Taking Questions" suggestion -- I might do that. It could be good for promoting AboveTheLaw.

Loafer: I concede that I'm a public figure. I have no problem with people flaming me, gossiping about me, etc. It comes with the territory.

But I don't like people using my name to post messages in a forum where I could possibly be posting. It's like the message board version of identity theft.

It's okay to gossip about public figures; it's not okay to steal their identities. And it's worse for me because even if I may be a public figure, I'm not a "celebrity."

If people post in this forum pretending to be me, it's reasonably likely that other people will think the posts are actually from me. In contrast, if a poster takes on the name of a celebrity -- e.g., "Tom Cruise" -- nobody would think that the real celebrity was posting.

I think there's some good reasons why somebody might prefer going into law than finance. I'm not sure any of those reasons applies to people who go into biglaw transactional work in NY.

Hours and job security are usually the two big reasons. Your chances of making partner in NYC Biglaw are much better than a long-term career in finance.

Look:

1. My pay is comparable to what junior associates get at i-banks.

2. My hours are better.

3. My job is more interesting.

4. If I eventually want banker/PE money, I can probably move over in a year or two and skip the hours/drudgery that junior bankers suffer through. And I'll have seen more deals and have more experience in negotiating than bankers of my seniority -- though of course I'll have much less experience in modelling etc.

Market this year for my class is around $200K. That's comparable to i-bank comp; likely higher than banker comp in lean years and lower in fat ones.

That is some sweet money. But you're working yourself to the bone right?

Well, yes. But less so than i-bank associates.

I'm not sure that they "work" that much. There's a lot of downtime in ibanking and I think it's more important to put in the face time.

My friend who moved to private equity said he was working harder than when he was in ibanking, but described it was similar hours (possibly slightly less), but actually having to do work for all those hours.

it really depends on WHICH pe firm, but yeah supposedly the powerhouses like KKR, Blackstone, Carlyle will just rape you to death. i can see myself surviving 100 hrs a week when its just face time, but 100 hrs a week of hard work would fucking kill me.

Good point. I just happen to hear more from the people at the powerhouse firms. Some random people I talk to from smaller PE firms say the workload is more or less comparable to ibanking, generally with more interesting work and better office dynamics.

is it true that you need to be GS/MS/UBS LA/Lazard to have a reasonable shot at the KKRs?

I think it needs to be a bulge bracket ibank although I'm not really up on their relative reputations. Might also depend on the specific group that you interview with.

no i dont think so. they also take people from strong departments of lesser banks, when those departments are relevant.

if you go over to the ibanking board, you will see many people asking about moving to other finance areas, not for the money, but so they can work only 60-65 hour weeks
