Not normal here because Analysts don't get bonuses #perspective

I would not be worried about being a 3 your first year! Been here 13 years and 3 is expected / default rating for first year at any level.

Would be worried about the 3 if you were an early start and at the form for more than half the year, but if you were only here for a few months then it just means they barely know you and you didn't make anyone not like you. Would not worry about bonus amount either.

Don't worry. I was rated a three and got about a 2K bonus my first year at PwC and was just promoted to SA this year on regular schedule!

I had 500$ bonus

I was here for a whole year and rated a 3.

Rating and bonus both seem normal. It would be unusual not to get a 3

Mine was 400

Mine was 4000 for first year and I am in assurance

A1, so did you get a 1 this year to become a senior? Pls share some tips. Thanks!

Yes you 22 yr old. Smh

What would your bonus be if you were rated a 1 or 2?

rated 3/5 would have given me 7500$ in my first year

My friend who was also a new hire in the same practice got 5600.

Rated a 2.

That pisses me off. She received more than double my bonus over utilization (a factor I can control) just because she's a favorite of one of our partners.

Im weighing two options with former managers that I worked with. Option 1: $114k (paycut from current salary); manager role overseeing a team of 7; great manager and work life balance /// option 2: $150k + bonus ; director role working with market leadership team so lots of visibility and if I do well can grow into more things. Work life balance should not be more than 50-60 hours a week but it was with a former micromanaging boss. I also have a toddler with most of the responsibilities
