Not many posts this year, did everyone get fired or get bagels?

6 months out of undergrad, $1B AUM SM, $100 + $200 bonus (*.5 pro-rated).

Didn't have an amazing year but bonus was much higher than guided. I was a bit caught off guard to say the least at the generosity. Not sure if anyone else had the same experience…

Depending on when you got your offer sounds like a "we like you and want to keep you, we saw banking pay go way up, so here some money so you don't wonder if grass is greener." Sounds like at least a good comp culture though.
