KPMG1 The study courses and the bonus are on seperate dates? Assuming the course material was reimbursed on 6/30/16 and certification bonus paid out 9/30/16. Both payments would have separate expiration dates?

I looked through EY policies bc I had the same question, and didn't find anything about repayment.

1 year from payout

I'm not sure about the study material. Just had a friend leave and they just repaid the bonus amount

EY doesn’t have any repayment clause.

EY 2 is right, you can leave the day it’s deposited if you want (at EY)

My firms bonus structure is based on “billed out” (what a partner actually bills to the client) dollars instead of actual hours billed. So you can work 2000 hours but the bonus is based on only 1850 hours, because 150 got cut over the year. Is this normal? It seems entirely unfair and makes it impossible to get a bonus.

Question for you all: Left D to Company A for a 50% raise in TC and slated to start in <1 week. However, just got an offer at Company B for a 100% raise in TC compared to D, or 30% raise in TC compared to company A. Both firms do similar work but B provides a more solid comp package. Job duties would be relatively similar. Is the % jump worth burning the bridge? Would have chosen Company B if the offer came sooner but the % difference in A to B is at my [personal] 30% threshold. TIA!
