Need to be with the firm for at least one year before promotion for that bonus

I was hired senior and got half of it, by the way

This is policy as of last year so would be applicable to OP

Oh mine - you guys rock! The deck is definitely applied to me! 👍 I did grow with the firm for 2.5 years so 10% in my case.

read the policy. you can get half of it, but there are more details you need to know and will only find there

I thought they stopped that practice last year.

they announced they were going to stop. But discreetly removed where they mentioned this and updated their policy talking about 2020/21 payments

Think it is really important for us to be able to talk openly about comp across firms. What ranges of salary do your firms have at the junior level? Below is my understanding at Deloitte,but others please correct me if you know of anything different for Commercial Consulting. I know titles will also be different across forms but should be able to match them up. Level 1: Analyst - $80-90k Level 2: Consultant: $90-110k Level 3: Senior Consultant (post MBA): $140-165k Level 4: Manager : $150-180k
