What is the typical vesting period of a retention bonus? Was offered one but not thrilled with the terms - doesn't fully vest for 18 months. 👀

Given that the purpose of a retention bonus is to retain you as an employee, I would think 18 months to two years is pretty typical. I would think offering retention bonuses to stay for a year would be A waste of time

It's difficult to even get a regular bonus here. Pray tell us your ways.

HR told me eating period is based on value. I think she said 5k is a year, 10k is 18 months, and it goes up from there.

^vesting, not eating. But I do plan to go to a fancy restaurant with mine, so not totally off base.

Didn't even know we had retention bonuses..

Yeah, what are those?

Mine is 2 years

Is this offered if you are closely tied to a client? And only at senior levels? Just curious.

How much are they typically? Do you present another offer?

Yeah, how do you get one of those?

I think OP may be referring to vested signing bonuses as a retention bonus

Not a signing bonus. Just told my partner I wasn't happy with compensation.

I think mine was 12 months, but it's been a while.

I'm a SA

What region, op?
