Big banks pay more than boutiques : There is an important pay gap at every level of seniority with sizeable differences in both salaries and bonus amounts at best paying banks.


The gap is increasing with experience : The gap between boutiques' and big banks' pay is widest at MD level hitting 29% vs. 18% for Analysts and 24% for Directors.


But Boutiques have their perks too : in a boutique, 1 in 2 Directors can expect to be promoted to MD, against only 1 in 3 in Big banks.
