Base isn’t a meaningful concept. We don’t have any base above $250k before MD. Also, avg base isn’t a meaningful concept. Base and bonus range is lock stepped by career step. Every PL has the same base and target/max bonuses. In you’re 3rd post MBA (PL1), you can expect $260-300k TC. The following year (PL2), you can expect $275-330k.

M2 if it matters. Thoughts?

My last day with Deloitte was a week ago - I signed several authorization forms allowing them to withhold from my final paycheck the 1/2 of my sign-on bonus I owe back for leaving in 1.5 years, sans some FICA taxes. Today, I received a barely coherent email saying, “due to some glitch, the loan amount wasn’t adjusted from pay-stub”... and asking me to wire transfer the amount to them. It’s to the point that if it wasn’t on the same thread as the original email, I would assume it’s a scam. Wtf?
