I feel like the term "bonus" should be reserved for a typical company where they work 40 hours a week and at the end of the year, they get “leftovers”.
In Wall Street, it is part of the process. It IS "Deferred Compensation". And deservedly so.
You guys get shit on as a result of semantics. Change the conversation. Lawyers figured it out (to avoid being burned on the stake), as well as companies like(I don’t work for them but I know they have “billable” hours, yet the “billable” is still highly discretionary).
Off I off-base?
