Associate Compensation / Base Pay

There was some speculation over the last year about associate base pay moving about $25k across all levels. I am wondering if you have actually seen this (I haven't seen an update since year end has rolled around and wonder if this pay bump actually took effect for most banks)

What is your current level and base pay?

Thanks

I think A0 has moved towards $150k but otherwise the above is standard. There was some speculation that comp would move towards:

A0 150
A1 175
A2 200
A3 225

but so far have been unable to confirm
