To me it seems like something from this story is missing. Are you in a group that trends towards up or out? 5k after 15-40k sounds like you’re being pushed out. You still haven’t mentioned performance, but most people in my group were flat this year.

Given my performance, a great bonus would be 30-50k but they felt they shouldn’t pay me more because my base is competitive

How many here left Deloitte after the recent good hikes with a hike on hike? How much has your salary changed when compared to a few months back? My case - Got around 50% hike at deloitte then switched with a further 35% so overall ~102%. I realized that best time to switch is after getting hike in existing company. Also, with next Deloitte appraisal in September 2022, it makes sense to leave now.

Does anyone else feel like their burn-out cycle is shorter? It used to take me about 2 years of grind before I hit a burn-out phase where I needed to do some serious recuperating.

And by burn-out, I mean you're at the point that every single ball you are juggling can drop and you get fired and almost see that as a blessing.
