But our fiscal year is the same as the calendar year. It is weird.

That looks like it might be difficult to fuck on.

I actually don't know when my parent company's fiscal year end is. I guess I just assumed when they placed the bonuses at end of much, it was to tie out to the fiscal year.

Just look at the annual report, brotha.

Nope, our parent company's fiscal year ends on december 31st.

Now I have no idea why the bonuses were pushed back to the end of Q1 (although I guess it makes more sense...they get to close out the fiscal year, determine the size of the bonus pool, and then pay out).

a company can accrue for this throughout the year. Like all banks on Wall St. (some have wacky pay-out dates now, partially due to regulations)

and at least in this industry, it isn't a Christmas-bonus style token of gratitude... It is a significant portion of total compensation and basically entails taking the pool of remaining profits at the end of the year and dividing them up between employees.

Not a partnership, but much more similar to a law firm than a big company in that regard...I suspect the banks do something similar for non junior staff.

GreenFrog's mama would disagree...

My last job, over 10 years ago now, paid bonuses in March. I think January and February sees more than it's fair share of turnover, as no one wants to change jobs in November and December, and you have to continue your employment until March 31st to get your bonus and stock options. I think they saved a material amount of dollars by deferring.

I don't enjoy the act of dropping a deuce at work, since the bathrooms are as bleak as a Russian gulag, but I do enjoy the lightness in my being that I feel afterwards.

Also, I had asparagus for dinner last night, so my product is especially potent today.
