Note: The first year compensation reported here is the compensation guaranteed at the time of employment. It consists of the starting salary plus the signing bonus plus any first year bonus guaranteed in the offer letter, if any. The annual performance-based bonus is not included here. In other words, the first year total compensation of our graduates is higher than the guaranteed compensation reported.
