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

Its true. Im an NQ with basic + variable arrangement - drawing average of around 6k each mth (excluding any bonuses, frontload or otherwise). One good thing about such pay structures is that the variable component of the pay makes you very motivated to chiong and get files/do more work.

30% cut. Likely permanent. Also laying people off. Formal notice given on Friday.

It's true. I think this guy is guesstimating but it's about right. It's a 10% cut to base and no bonus, so it's about 30%.

WP assoc here. Can attest to this. Work has dried up a lot. Times are tough now and firm is tightening purse strings all around.

I realised my question wasn't specific enough. I gathered that the revenue of the team has decreased generally. But do partners (both equity and paid) also agree on having their salary cut or do they just slash the pay of those under them?
