im betting $80,000 for a top tier third year - any thoughts?

$80k for top 3rd years sounds reasonable, unless you're part of the group that received a $10k increase in base, then you should subtract that from market bonus numbers to figure out your own. It could be a pretty large range again though, possibly as low as $60k for low 3rd years.

GS paid their analysts bonus for the first full year couple months ago. (For those who don't know, they are on the year end cycle, so the class of 08 analysts got a stub Dec. 08, then bonus for full year 09 recently) The number is somewhere around 80k for an upper tier (can't stay top for sure but near top). I don't know if this is implying that the 2nd year number is 80k, or even first.

But as a 2nd year im hoping for 80k, so for 3rd year it could be 90 or 100

Work at a BB

We were just told bonus #s wont be given out until the end of July...

May 26, 2010

So a 3rd year analyst that is not being promoted to associate will have to wait until the end of July (and until they no longer work at the firm) to get their number? Doesn't seem right considering the analyst program ends in June

I think a lot of banks are trending that way (pushing back the bonus payout date)

I have a friend at Citi who heard the same thing. Unless of course, the BB you work at is Citi.

Most guys in my group have said 30 is a hard minimum number otherwise 100% checkout mode.
General expectation is 45-50.

No idea what it'll be.
