EY peeps. Is $5K sign-on bonus a real thing? Why some got it and some did not?

Real for me, as a experienced hire.


At GT it depended on the year you started. Some got it. Some didn't. CPA bonus is/was always available


Only for relocation... At least in my start class


Definitely not real

If you passed the exam before you start, you get your certification bonus as soon as you submit the paperwork.

I think for experienced hires, if you have your CPA they will do the bonus as a sign on bonus.

I got a signing bonus as an experienced hire - came in at staff 2. It was $3,000 and I did not have my CPA

Joined Deloitte advisory as full time after my internship, got a $5,000 bonus and another $5,000 after passing the CPA
