My management team looked me straight in the eyes and offered me a 5k bonus like it was a great bonus. So laughable

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.

You need to speak with management about this. You can’t let them bully you because they will if you let them

Devil’s advocate here. Was it a great bonus given your performance? Or are you in FICC perhaps...

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