I do more than just fund work; I also do securities/M&A/compliance/employment etc. I'm basically a jack of all trades.
Is it constant fire drills or do you know what you have to do in general on a day-to-day basis? Also do you have a blackberry or no? I know in some jobs you don't have to check email once you're out of the office...
Rarely do I have fire drills; but we're on buy side so we generally dictate terms and timing. I don't have a blackberry but I do have email on my phone and I do check email when i'm home but I don't generally get any and if i do there's no rush to deal with it until morning.
It does get crazier if it's right in the middle of a deal or right before a 10-Q/K filing but otherwise it's pretty standard hours.
Can you explain how target bonuses work? I am evaluating an offer that has a target bonus (though it is a $ figure and not a percentage). Do you just negotiate milestones with the higher ups or is it more based on profitability?
