Lol PwC bonuses start at 2%.

Well it's based on your rating. For the associate level it's a band of 0-15%. Tier 4s and 5s get no bonus (and will likely be let go soon after), 3s get 2-3%, 2s get 5-7%, 1s get 9-12%. Never heard of anyone getting the full 15%.

Starts at ~15% of base, goes up maybe 5 to ten points a year. Top performers get double the number I'm quoting.

What's the bonus based on levels?

Is the 1-5 tier rating adjusted for cohort level? Like does a year 1 associate get rated on the same tier as a year 3 associate? I ask because I joined in the fall and have had A LOT of bench time despite having good snapshots and worried what tier I may end up at

How can you get a rating if you never get projects? Been on the bench for 4 months now.

New hire btw. Only got a 8 week project back in September, nothing since

My bonus was $1800 last year

P3, you'll probably get a 3 rating

3rd year analysts at mck can get $45k bonus if top performers..

Mck, how do raises work for you all? I heard somewhere that yours are basically independent of title.

PwC bonuses not large anymore. Sorry.

Yes, to some degree... raises are based on fall rating, raises on Jan 1 every year, and pay scale is continuous for some tenures independent of promotion, e.g., there's no pay raise when you are designated EM, you just continue on same pay scale getting an increase at end of year in line with rating. There is some point I think where they will true you up to some base level, but not sure at which title (partner, maybe?).

What is a forced distribution... Bell curve is there for a reason.
