I think there is discretion to award but it is tough. I know a cw/ad team that won a few lions and got $5k each.

Bonuses at WPP firms are discretionary and usually take at least 7 layers of approvals (US CFO is final say), and can only happen if and only if you're hitting numbers. Speaking from experience....

They still come from the pile of money WPP controls, but have less impact on the bottom line since it's on-off and not impacting benefits in any way, so given slightly more freely

I received one 10k bonus last year that was performance related, not tied to a schedule. But to echo the other comments...bonuses are gonna be hard to come by this year.

They tend to use them as incentives when they can't give a raise or promotion. They're not as regulated by WPP.

So be nice to finance.

Curious if there are any others here who work in public accounting and had their start dates delayed from August 2020 to January 2021 because of Covid. Senior is basically guaranteed after 2 YOE from what I’ve heard but because of the delayed start date for our start class we’ll only be at 1.5 YOE this promotion cycle. Do you think they’ll grant them or wait until the end of next performance year?

What are your views on promotions — should they ALWAYS be driven by the employee (“I want a promotion. How do I make this happen?”) vs. the manager (“I think you’re ready to grow into a new role”)? I recently got a new manager who aligns with my career interests, but both of us are still under my previous manager who treats people as resources. I’m bitter about the upward progress of peers on other teams (w/ better managers), a combo of FOMO + feeling like I’ve failed myself.

Hot take: consultants at MBB have big egos and seem to promote the idea that they're the "best of the best" not realizing that, in 2021, the "best of the best" works in "tech" typically as engineers and consultants are actually just overworked also rans with oversized egos.
