Bonus season and performance ratings can be tough to navigate. 

Do you agree with the way your firm evaluates and compensates individual performance? If you could, what would you change about the way your firm evaluates performance? What type of culture and employee behavior do you think is incentivized at your firm via its bonus and review system?
