Mods, can you please delete dump posts from summers and make sure this is bumped up instead of spending 15 hours a day un-anoning people?

Your summer bonus is currently sitting in escrow pending close on a partners third vacation home. Sorry. :cry:

If firms want to wait until the end of the year to top up my bonus with the extra 30K+ they should have distributed during the summer, I guess that's fine. But if this year ends up being no less profitable than last year and there's no extra money, I'll be pissed.

You’ll get to see your bonus some time next year when partners start showing pictures of their new vacation homes/lambs.

I guess the real question is, what will you do with your anger?

Lambs? Like for ritual sacrifice?

Autocorrect doesn’t think Lambos is a real word.

Also if anyone thinks this will mean more $$$ for end of year bonuses, they’re fooling themselves. Bonuses aren’t about revenue. It’s about good publicity for firms.

Honestly activity in this thread is even more demoralizing- every time somebody posts I'm hoping it's news of a firm dropping that $$ but then I see it's not :(

Milbank's 15-spot jump in the Vault rankings today seems like an interesting new data point for firms to consider. Now that it's clear the market doesn't consider Gunderson to be a comp leader, it seems like a more traditional v100 firm has a wide open path to the associate goodwill and commensurate bump in next year's Vault rankings that will follow if they can show that they're the ones who moved the market on summer bonuses this year.

Time for DPW to smash the market with summer bonuses to stop it's decline into mediocrity.

A DPW partner was just showing me how high quality his dpw branded messenger bag was.

Apparently he picked it.

And no hours requirement for the summer bonus! Patterson Belknap's getting a boost on my next Vault survey.
