    No doubt they are probably saying 500s as total comp. That includes your health insurance, disability insurance and malpractice insurance. And on top of that, you probably have draconian metrics to hit. So sure if you want to be a hamster on a wheel and work with a bunch of clockpunchers who are only looking out for themselves, be my guest. Compensation aside, there is a lot to be said about a cohesive group willing to help each other out in a pinch etc. Clockpuncher PE types are undoubtedly less likely to cover you if your kid gets sick etc. Also if market winds shift, they will 100% cut your comp and if that happens in a bad market, you wont be able to easily go elsewhere.

    Bottom line is that PE should be a last resort. Looking at PE groups all over the country is just bizarre tbh. Dont be lazy and stop just waiting for a PE headhunter to present you with some amazing to good to be true job. Find a few locations youre ok with and find the best non PE option in the location you choose. Avoid PE at all costs.
