MS has weird AS system that nobody else does.

AS0 = Foundational (basically 3rd year analyst, intended for AS promotion year after, but called AS), used to be 125, now 150. Apparently they get promoted to AS1 after 1 year, so unless they bump AS1-4 salaries, AS0 today will be stuck at 150 for 2.5 years

AS1 = Stub (same as AS0 at other banks), still 150

AS2 = Same as AS1 at other banks, still 150

AS3 = still 200

AS4 = still 200

Would have been a nice time for banks to match their US and London comp :/
