If im driving a project that results in the bank saving a few hundred million. Is it wrong of me to feel entitled to a percentage of the savings ? I mean I have a bonus but I’d like to discuss this.

I wouldn’t bring it up with any manager when I was in supply chain optimization, I drove projects that saved millions, but that is just part of the job.

Depending on your relationships with everyone above you, it couldn't hurt to ask.

I have saved clients as a consultant $100mms and never thought a percentage appropriate- the question you should ask is what is the alpha/beta ratio. Could someone else have done it - was it a good job well done or something unique
