    i think you should add a disclosure so it's clear that salary is not across the board and only a privileged few (top 10 students?) are offered that type of pay from a MBA program (top 5)

    No that's not correct. You're stating that about 50 students get typical IB associate offers across the country. The reality is probably 10 fold. A typical IB has an incoming class of 20 to 50 new associates a year.

    i am not sure if the figures you mention are in reference to just a base salary, or to all-in compensation, but i think either way they are off (too high for base only, too low for all-in).

    They include bonus. base salary would be around 100k, and bonus 50-100k.

    First year bonus is a stub of 20 to 40k with no salary bump until year two. Bonuses are paid in spring.

    Following year (basically after a year and a half) salary bumps up 20 - 40k and bonus is 70 - 100k.

    Most bonuses are at least 25% stock that pays out over five years.

    Recent and rough estimates.

    So this is what happens when you get into this field for the money (or worse, prestige lol) : you're so miserable that you want to tell the world how miserable you were...

    A lot of this is true (minus all the hyperbole of course) by the way. This is an awful job if you have no interest in what you're doing - because you're doing it all the time, all day long, every day of the week.

    ya you're trolling. You cannot think of any additional reasons to choose a career ?

    I'm not saying there's no other reason. I'm asking you for what reason you went into banking

    For the same reasons most people choose a career: an intersection of general interest for the job, skill matching and opportunities.

    i'm reading a big report on M&A in the wine world. The deal volume is a bit more robust that I expected, though it's still far from the general consumer beverage industry's volume.

    I don't know anything about it but I'd think that winery M&A must require a crazy amount of due diligence to even get to price discovery if there are large reserves. I'm sure there's a ton of social issues too.

    it'd really hard to find information on some of these deals. In 2009, Vincraft acquired Kosta Browne, a relatively small but prestigious producer, for around $40 MM, but terms of the deal and how they reached their valuation weren't disclosed. Bummer.

    What are the chances of being able to move into IB from Asset/Wealth Management Analyst?
