Poof, your annual bonus is gone!

Aaaaaannnnd THIS is why I’m more focused on base pay over TC when looking at a compensation package. Base pay doesn’t have dependencies on external factors beyond your control (yes, I know, you can lose pay if let go or company folds). Bonuses should be gravy on top of an already great salary, but some companies equate TC to base market rate pay. In that case, when a bad year hits or the company decides to stop paying bonuses, you’re below average with market rate pay. I appreciate a nice bonus, but I’d really rather just see that money in my regular pay.

It depends on your level. At D consultant and higher get bonuses. In my case I was an expierenced hire who started after the cutoff date by a few weeks so I didn’t get a bonus for last performance year.

Unlikely - maybe less bonus, but partners are likely the ones who will get hammered
