Bonus: $40k
Bucket: Top

Anecdotally heard that highest bonus last year was $45k, so in line w/ the 10-15% reductions others have mentioned. Also, fuck having a top bucket bonus be ~50% of base - w/ how much the government takes to redistribute and fund the world's largest ponzi scheme, shooting for mid-bucket is the better play.

IK bonus seems good but I genuinely have worked ~1.25-1.5x the hours of most of my banking contemporaries/friends. My roommates were coming home 11-1 and I was routinely going home at 4-6. I was logging in 110h/wk for 6 months straight and would guess that I averaged ~95h/wk over my first year. Not complaining - very grateful to have a good-paying job during COVID and feels like I learned a lot but just wanted to give some context to the numbers
