Worked on this huge project day and night for more than one year and only got $50 awards. Is there something wrong with me or this is common?

There are not that many $s to give out. You at least got one and that is a good thing. The real money is in the YE bonus.

@EY does your company offer any specials re: student loan refi? For example Deloitte gives an additional 0.25% off Sofi.

Trying to take advantage of low rates while they last tho, not sure what they’ll be like in ~2-3 months time
