Hours worked is certainly a factor but not the only factor (at least at KPMG). Performance, specialization, etc. are factored in as well, so yes it is possible to get a relatively good bonus without putting in crazy hours. Typical amount is going to vary largely by group. My experience is just as a staff/senior, and in my group the bonus is a very negligible part of total comp (think about $5k for a reference point). Some groups it’s substantially more, others less.

As I said the % is backed into and there are a plethora of macro and micro factors, but if you need a reference point, think anywhere from 6% (leaning towards both bad macro and micro) to 15% (great micro and macro). Just because less people are eligible for bonus doesn’t mean they’re going to throw more dollars into the the pool.

Some advice from a regular remote interviewer - If you feel you can justify/maximise your value to a company above the current salary band, apply for the role, impress the heck out of the panel and push for that higher salary. You'll be surprised how open this conversation can be.

Company's have budgets in place for recruitment. Therefore, adjustments can be made to other open/upcoming roles marginally to facilitate recruiting your higher salary request.
