What do you think if you found out that your peers got a higher salary increase but you got the bigger bonus?

That doesn't sound like professional skepticism to me....

Have you actually seen their pay reports or some formal documentation of the raise? Maybe they are just lying to you.

I think they're lying. Raises are slotted by ranking. There's no chance they were rated lower than you but got a higher salary increase. That just doesn't happen.

How does that happen? Both salary and bonus are slotted and based on rating.

Also maybe they started lower than you and need a bigger market bump

I work with someone who got a lower rating than me, but got a bigger raise...we started at the same salary...it makes no sense to me

It's someone I trust, and we started exactly the same

Definitely a credible source

I agree with PwC 1 - it happens and it's legit. I started the same time as my peers at my old firm, actually with more busy season experience than everyone but one peer, and I was making $6-7k less than them and I always had higher ratings than them as well. All my close friends confirmed what they were making and it was frustrating when they knew I deserved more than them for the amount of work I was doing. So I went and found another job, they made promises to bump up the pay, never did. Raise and promotion time last year was a slap in my face so I switched to EY FAAS instead.

@EY2 were you pdubs before?

No, middle market at BDO.

Been interviewing. Did four rounds and on Thursday before the final round recruiter asked salary expectations. Recruiter said my base ask was $20k above max. I said I’m flexible with base/bonus mix to hit my base ask number in total. Recruiter said “that’s doable”. Final round was Friday with C-level. Emailed “thank you” notes yesterday AM and haven’t heard anything—not even an acknowledgement. Bad sign or am I overthinking?

For those with HMBradley - I deposited $99k in an account with $1 being added for direct deposit to earn 3% interest. With the interest that’s been added, I’m now close to $100k and need to withdrawal to stay under the limit. Does the interest count as a deposit for the quarter, or will my total deposits only be the $1 direct deposits? If so, how do you continue to earn 3% (by saving at least 20% of deposits) and stay under the $100k limit?
