How unusual is it for a new first year to get a bonus and raise after 3 months of working?

I got an bonus my first year, but not a raise since I had only been on that salary for a few months. I’ve gotten raises both years since then though. Many of my colleagues had the same experience as me, though some people got raises. Depends on the firm.

I got a $1,000 bonus my first year. Started in September and was given this as a “thanks for your work so far” bonus right before Christmas. No raise.

Same experience here!

I joined a firm at a time when I was still in the lock step plan. Firms across the board started competing for salaries. My firm followed. Within the first few months my salary went up somewhere around $60k, through two bumps. A nice surprise.

I switched firms halfway through my first year. At the new firm, I ended up getting huge raises at the end of my first and second years. On track for another this year as well. Probably depends on a lot of things, but keep up the hard work!

I’m asking because I got a raise and a bonus due to good performance and that seems unusual to me. Though I had a really great performance review and have been praised a lot by the partners I wasn’t expecting it. To be honest I also have no one to share it with (I don’t talk about my income with people besides my wife and my mother) so I’m unloading that here.

It feels great! Honestly it’s my dream job at a great firm and I’m beyond happy so far. It’s hard work but my team rocks and I feel like I’m in the right place. Things like this just show that I’m valued for my contribution and make me want to work harder and keep progressing. Other firms should take note!

My firm did this for me.

I got a $3k bonus after 6 months, 12.5k raise after 9 months, and a $12k bonus after a year. If you have shown to be a good attorney and your firm recognizes that, I don’t think it’s that unusual.

IMO, this "what we learned" page is complete garbage! (1) Many of us are pro vaccines, but I don't see posts begging their companies to mandate them [tho I DO see many - negotiating comp, salary bump etc. posts] (2) Remote work is NOT the reason people are leaving the industry. As consultants, we BENEFIT substantially with WFH (KPMG, take notes from PwC) (3) Overall, WLB has gotten BETTER with WFH allowances. We actually get to live at home & spend time with our families #AFatGlassdoorBias
