Goldman paid out $16 billion total in bonuses alone...whoo that's a lot of money. I want a slice of that...:)

I can't believe that so few associates would be on this board. It's so easy to post anonymously.

i heard that GS, ms, lehman, bear have announced numbers so far.

I only know bear, b/c i work there
for '05 associates:

1 got 280
13 got 300
9 got 325
3 got 350

at Goldman, the range was 275-325 with the vast majority getting 280 (goldman discount)

at Morgan Stanley, same range

Lehman looked more like Bear.

I would expect $300k to be average across the street for 05 associates

for analysts who got paid in july, the high was 80k bonus with the vast majority getting around 70k for 1st yr analysts across the street

hope this helpful "

The chart seems to indicate that these are bonus numbers, but they look more like total comp. Of course at the Director and higher level, salary is just a rounding error in good years.

Yes, they represent total comp, not bonus. Numbers came in slightly higher than represented.

Just a quick question.

I was under the impression that first year analysts did not receive a stub bonus around the end of the year, but received their full bonus one year after they started at the firm (usually around July). Is this true? or do they get a stub bonus?

If they don't get a stub bonus, who does? Is it usually first year associates and new hires above first year associates (ie new directors hired in September or something)?

Thanks.

Hi all,

Threads like this do not work. The quality of the numbers can not be trusted so its really a lost cause.

SmartBanker, if you are interested in JPM numbers then maybe we can exchange info via pvt messaging? Ping me if interested.

I've confirmed a few of these numbers myself and they look accurate. Just ignore the posts that confuse stub with first-year.

No word on JPM, but I heard from multiple sources that ML, GS, BS, and Lehman were all $45K in both IB and S&T. With that many banks toeing the line I'd be very surprised if anyone deviates....

i work at a bb in Brazil - Sao Paulo - and we've got loads of newcomers, mostly associates and some vps - from ny and london. i didn't really know why they were coming back and i thought they were just home sick but after getting to know how much you're paid there, i think i get them much better.
1st year analyst's bonusses here are:
- ubs/pactual and itau/bba - US$ 300k
- credit suisse - US$ 250-275k
- ml, citi, jpm - US$ 200k
you can also get at least US$ 150k at small local boutiques
i don't know much about associate's bonusses but i'll try to post them here soon

I took a highschool fieldtrip to go see the dolphins in the Bay Area, apparently, the dolphin trainers get $2000 USD bonuses yearly...

My point: Who needs ibanking when you can do dolphin training
