I am surprised that I haven't seen any posts on here discussing the 2012 bonuses that are about to be communicated and paid out by many banks. I have heard some rumors of what bonuses will be, but I am wondering what others have heard.
To start the discussion, I have heard that top bucket first year associates atgot $290k all-in compensation for 2012. I saw another post on WSO saying that first year analysts got $55K bonus and first year associates got $80K.
Has anyone heard any other numbers? Or does anyone have any guesses on what bonuses will be? I am definitely curious what % of associate bonuses will be stock vs cash this year at different banks.
