EY should be embarrassed about that PBB thread. Talk about overselling and underdelivering.

EY said multiple times to expect a bonus % about 50% more than in 2019. That’s what everybody got (if not a little more). And of course comparing to a 2019 person with the same level and performance rating.

I actually feel like technically they came out within the ranges they stated, but the $ that really came out to us just insulting to a degree.

like

Sorry. I meant that like they gave ranges and that’s what people got (within that range). However, most people seem to be at the very floor of this range (4.5%-5%) and as a bonus amount it’s pretty disappointing when you see it in writing and think about all the hours and stress put into it. It’s not life changing $

What’s PBB mean

like

It's their bonus. The thread is pinned on /r/accounting. The past month EY has had multiple all hands on deck meetings about hitting 150% of firm revenue target, having the biggest bonus pool ever, telling people expect a big payout... They communicated that bonus to the employees today...

The upcoming mass exodus is going to be beautiful.

What does PBB mean? Did EY announce both raises and bonuses? Or just bonuses?

I just looked in that thread and are those really annual bonuses or like an out of period additional? I think I’ve gotten spot bonuses so far this year equal to a lot of those number and my annual was triple what I see there. Scary stuff EY.

PwC did the same thing so I’m glad this is a consistent theme across B4.

We’re only 30% higher on our VC pools from last year according to leadership webcasts. Haven’t seen bonuses yet, but expecting disappointment
