In my experience it will always be divided into buckets, but your firm/group has discretion regarding the number of buckets and distribution amongst the buckets.

So say we are 5 analyst, if 4 of us are awesome we can all get top bucket? Hypothetically...

It's more likely that they would say you are all performing the same (even if it is awesome) and give you all middle bucket with a few thousand dollar variations from one analyst to the next. Banks aren't ever going to give every person in the group top bucket.

Hypothetically, yes - although unlikely. It depends on analyst distribution across the firm, how big the pool is, etc

Typically 3. Top, mid, and low-performers.

I think its typically something like 10%, 80%, 10% or maybe 10%, 70%, 20%
