I think it sends a very real signal to the market just how desperate these firms are to retain people. Depending on what happens when bonus hits at most firms I think special bonuses will likely be needed.

All depends on the volume of work.

If the economy takes a turn such that there’s a work decrease then no but if not yes. I mean to the extent the firms make more money then why not.

It will take more than just profits going up. Most firms that happens every year.

My current group is not very supportive of my promotion. One of my directors said s/he would like to keep me as an associate (rather than a senior) for as long as a/he could, so this way I can get exposure to a lot of things and become a successful senior. And I can get the best rating from s/he as an associate. I am the go-to person of our group. Everyone loves to put me on their engagements and I get good ratings from everyone. People who came to PwC at the same time with me got promoted
