Not sure where you're getting your info but I don't think the front-loading scheme applies to all big 4s.

Furthermore, at least for my big 4 the frontload is not the entire bonus. Another annual bonus is paid on top of that.
How many months' annual bonus does B4 usually pay? (On top of frontloading)

Apologies, but "you wont get anything more than 1 mth bonus in small/med firm" is not true. Trust me, the **** is not worth staying for if you only get 1 mth bonus at the end of the year.

I work for a small firm. We consistently give out between 3 - 5 months bonus once the accounts are in for the year. The only time this inst the case is if the firm doesn't meet a specific set target. It looks like this year will be one of those years - but this is one of those cases where you'll be rewarded for loyalty.

If you intend to pivot out into private practice outside of criminal litigation (I assume so given that you mentioned big firms), it's unlikely that your pay will scale accordingly. PQE is ultimately about relevant experience, isn't it?

Pre-covid this was another 0-3 months of your frontloaded monthly salary.

Ya high variance. Some of my friends negotiated for variable component pegged to billings. Very good deal cause they have good workflow.
