I have a job offer from Deloitte S&A currently to start in March. They said if I started before March they would allow me to participate in the bonus program this year and after March 1 they would not. Two Qs 1) If I started before March 1, say on Feb 1 or Feb 15, it would just be a very small bonus prorated for the time there till before March correct? And 2) they say my annual bonus is 24% for an SC role. Typically, how often is it actually 24%? Is it usually much smaller like 7%?Deloitte
