Standard salary from a bulge bracket investment bank (e.g., Goldman, Deutsche, CS) for a "grad" with MBA (e.g., Harvard, Wharton) would be USD100K and a 6 month bonus for the first 1-2 years. If you work in corporate finance, ECM or institutional equities (best to start in research), be prepared to work at least 14-18 hrs a day and travel globally. About half or less of the grads survive the first two years. After about 2 years, you can pull a larger bonus, say 1-2 years and base will rise to about USD150K+, particularly if you get your first promotion to VP from Associate.
