Has anyone gotten their CPA bonus and left within a year? Did they claw back the bonus when you left?

It’ll be the after tax amount. Just make sure to get an amended W-2 so it’s not included in your income for the year.

I left BDO to go to EY. I left 10 days before my one year mark on the CPA payout and between my one and two year mark for the signing bonus. I had to pay back the full cpa bonus and half of the signing bonus, which is exactly what the policy stated.

Thanks EY2! This is the exact situation I will be in - planning on leaving during the payroll they paid it on. Guess I will have to work until the last day of that pay period

Believe it depends on your firm. Each one has different policies. Just look at what the policy documents say regarding the bonus

I knew a few people who left within two years and still had to pay it back

@BDO1 That’s strange. My bonus agreement only said one year from date paid. Was wondering how strict they will be since mine was paid in January (if any days worked in January would count or if last day worked had to be the last day of the pay period)

I didn’t get it but I know a few of my friends who left in June were under 2 years and had to repay partial amount at least. They surprisingly didn’t have to repay Becker

Anyone who got promoted did not get MA. The salary of a senior at the immediate lower level is almost equivalent to a just promoted person. E.g. salary of a senior A is around 10L, but of a just promoted AC is around 10.7 - 11. The salary of a 6 month AC is around 12.5L. The same type of gap is present at AC C layer, only magnified, differences going as far as 2L in a difference of 6 months. 1. How is this fair to promotees? "Treat people right"? 2. Are we really just gonna sit and accept this?

Have anyone done contracting negotiations before? I've interviewed for co A & B and co A extended an offer today. The offer does not meet my current salary. Co B's interview structure is 3 rounds and I've finished my 2nd round today. The recruiter mentioned that since I am a contractor my current salary is incomparable as they will provide benefits, etc. Is this true? I have 2 yrs of contracting HR exp from fortunate 500 co’s & OMW to get my SHRM-CP. Appreciate your advice in advance.
