Did this with my current shop. They asked me to provide documentation of my previous year’s bonus (this was in NY before it became illegal to ask about comp) and they bought me out of that amount, scaled up to be proportionate with my new company’s base/bonus breakdown. The buyout became a clause in my employment contract as well

Hi SKP, I have my final round interview for SKP tomorrow (entry-level consultant, about to finish bachelor's). I've come to learn that SKP is about to update pay bands in a few weeks to adjust compensation to be more in line with the market rate. 
 My question: If I were to get an offer following my interview tomorrow, would it be based on the new pay band or current one given I most likely wouldn't have my start date until January? How can I know which band it is? Simon-Kucher & Partners

I recently interviewed for a role at Goldman Sachs and completed all the levels. After the final interview HR sent me a link to fill out the Compensation Questionnaire and requested for related documents. Next day, another HR called me for some clarification and told me that they are going to request for some approvals. Does this mean I can expect an offer letter? If yes, how long will that process take?
