Hi fishies!
It’s the most suspenseful time of year-bonus time! Any insight to what is considered a decent bonus for an EA that supports a team in IB (top 5 banks) which includes a global head, 3 MDs and VP? 10+ years as an EA but have only been in the role for 1 yr with new firm. Any insight with range is appreciated.

What is this "bonus" you speak of? Are you telling me some of you are appreciated and properly compensated?!

Depends on market but in NYC assuming you perform well 10-20% is standard. 30% is very good. Also, obviously depends on the individual companies returns for the year.

That depends on the individual company. I wasn’t speaking of a holiday bonus as that’s separate from performance and much more variable. Though if you get one typically before the new year, and not through the actual company in my experience but the individual execs

Up to 10% of your salary if it’s based on performance!

Some are given based on levels, at 10%, 15% or up to 20% of annual base salary

Not in IB, but sharing to shine a light and say it does happen - I'm in tech and get 20%. I've heard as high as 30%.

Finance and expecting 20-25% this year; last year was same.

The range varies depending on location. Where are you based? I think anything in between 20-25% is okay.

My manager knows that everything I've worked w her on I end up doing 90% of the work when it's meant to be split so it is a known issue. We're both at level 3 so are genuinely peers. She seems like a nice person but i have 0 positive work feedback tbh
