I am wondering if anyone else has anything to add to this? I had really excellent reviews and got no discretionary additional bonus on top of market bonus for my class year despite being 250+ hours over budget. I was really shocked. Firms like Norton Rose and Sheppard Mullin publish “high biller” bonuses for 100 and 200 hours above budget. What is “market” for high billers?

Will tell you on Friday

Discretionary meaning not tied to hours??

Meaning $$ above the market bonus you get for hitting the hours expectation.

Hi everyone I got an offer from EY India .

I just received a verbal job offer today, but the title was slightly different than what I applied for. The title in the job posting was Digital Strategist, and the title in the offer was Senior Account Executive, Digital.

I’m currently a Social Media Manager, and their offered salary is higher than what I’m earning now. They said that the SAE, Digital is a better title since it sounds more senior, but I’m a bit worried about it. Should I still try to negotiate about the title?
