I am new here. This is my first post.
I am a b.tech + mba (tier 1). I joined my first job in 2009 and still in the same company. I am into marketing especially digital marketing.
As I have never switched my job in last 13 years I know I am paid less than industry standard.

How much is the bonus % yearly on an average in Morgan Stanley ?
And is bonus and hike is same or different ?
I feel as though not increasing stub year bonuses is shortsighted. Given that they are pro-rated it is very low cost, doesn't feel great being the only one left out in increases, and kind of want to try retaining them long term tho they contribute little now. Seems like a way to cheap out since doing it would require pushing the rest of the scale up slightly.

Have an opportunity to roll of a 6-month engagement soon. PPEDs & SMEs would like me to return (minimum another 6 months).
