I say why when you don’t know how long this will last and who else will be laid off. I am just banking anything extra I get right now

Just got my first bonus in 20 years. It wouldn’t exactly save anyone’s job though l. Feel safe in saying no.

I already took a pay cut to make sure there are no layoff, I am keeping the bonus in case things go south.

Not true for all agencies. I heard Havas gave bonuses to only those below VP this year.

I would happily give away bonuses! If I didn’t get laid off from this damn thing. But I don’t blame anyone for saying no!

Same. Also no pay cut that we know will not be rescinded. Loosing a 20% bonus I can deal with a consistent 20% pay cut I can’t pay my bills

15%-20% bonuses are given in March by each holding company to employees SVP and EVP. I’ve gotten mine the last four years. Although it hasn’t come in this year yet. 

Yes. But I didn’t get a bonus so there’s that

Salary in interview. I was asked about my salary in an interview at MBB. Say I was currently receiving 70k fixed + 22k bonus. I told them "my salary is 100K including bonus". Can this little round off hurt later? The interviewer was basically asking me how much I am expecting and I told him industry standards. Kept pursuing it. In end he said just give me sense of your current salary and so I rounded off.
