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.

So Deloitte has announced mid-year market adjustment (for all functions) and retention bonus (for audit at least). I received comp comm today and pretty impressed by it - 17% salary increase and $35k bonus as a senior. Wondering if it’s what other PA firms are also doing to retain people now?

I got word last week that I received the green light from HC. I'm starting comp discussions next week for SWE Manager L6. It's a remote position and geographically located in a city comparable to Chicago or Austin (probably in between). There are no data points on levels for my Geo. Basically asking for some ranges I should go in with next week. My thoughts: Base: 250k RSU: 600-700 (4yr) I'm going to ask for a sign on since I would miss out on my current bonus this year. Thoughts? TYIA

Curious what other underwriters are being paid. We have had a good amount of turn over lately where people are getting 20K plus more, but the people we are hiring to fill those spots are saying we pay “way” more than their previous role. Seems there is a big gap.
