How is your firm’s bonus policy structured? Set amounts based on year of call and hours? Discretionary? Who the hell knows? What bonus?

We get a specific amount for hitting target. Then, for every tranche of 50 hours above target there are extra amounts to go get.

There is also some discretion if ever someone doesn’t hit their target but it has nothing to do with performance or willingness to take on work.

10% at target and extra 5% for every 100 hours above up to 30%. They say it’s all discretionary but this is what everyone gets. Heard some firms (stikes and Blake’s) gives you 30% for hitting target.

Not true. You can get 30% for hitting 2200 hours.

I am due to take 2 weeks parental leave sometime in the next month and have an offer lined up. Is it better to tell the new place I would prefer to push my start date to take my leave and join two weeks after (accounting for 2 weeks of notice when I get back)? Would that be burning a bridge with current firm (taking leave and giving notice as soon as I am back)? I want to avoid losing 2 weeks of salary during that time if I can.
