It's that time of year again so I figured I'd start a thread. I know everyone is making their intra-bank excel sheets so let's see if we can have some accurate data in this thread. We should set something up like this:

Confirmed: (Y/N)

Haven't heard anything from my bank but if I were to guess, I'd say 60-70 for first years.

Bonus Watch '10: JPMorgan

An unhappy junior rainmaker writes:

Analyst bonuses just got delayed until mid-August supposedly so that the firm can ensure we're being paid on par with the rest of the Street and not getting underpaid.
Nice try, but you're going to have to wake up a lot earlier if you want to fool this UJR. He's not buying it.

The real reason they're doing this is likely to put on hold the massive attrition that is/was about to occur as groups are massively understaffed and no one is doing anything about it. They over-fired during the recession and many of our businesses, SLF and DCM in particular, are experiencing unheralded deal flow with very low junior resource leverage. People are getting killed and managers aren't doing anything about it. There was going to be a mass exodus come July which clearly will now have to wait.

Bonus Watch '10: UBS Stalling For Time, Goldman To Tell It What To Do

A none too pleased junior rainmaker writes:

UBS IBD announcement day delayed for a month till mid july, payout day delayed two weeks to July 31st. Waiting For Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley numbers. JPMorgan is delayed as well. Not sure about the time line.

Goldman pays out in December so that articles doesn't even make sense. And MS has always been the last to payout.

If everyone starts waiting for everyone else, no one is going to get paid!!!
