It depends on the nature of the firm, is into a specific area or generic?

VC (and PE) are very fragmented, and tend to align their remuneration to the IB sector from which they take most of their hires. At Analyst level you should simply be looking for something competitive with what you are currently earning, and account for whether the VC firm in question includes Analysts and Associates in carried interest (most don't).

As regards career progression it is much less structured than MC - usually (depending on the size of the firm) you will join in execution, crunching numbers and being an Excel grunt basically, but a smaller firm will likely get you involved through more of the transactional lifecycle, including origination which is the killer piece you need. Progression comes with experience, and you simply take on more responsibility as you go forwards, taking on a greater % of the management of a fund until you are ready to go out and win some investment funding for yourself. Most of your time willl be spent either evaluating potential investments, or - considering your MC background - you may be deployed to assist in cost cutting or suchlike at a portfolio company. Larger VC/PE firms - 3i for example - are able to offer more strutured training and development programmes, but across the board it's an environment where you eat what you kill. Simple as.
