From the mailbag:
Happened to be sitting behind someone on my NYC commute this week who was reading a deck (in font large enough for me to read) on EY's salary ranges etc. Didn't see any $ numbers and most was hard to see without context or the full page but I did see this:
(I don't know ey terms - apr = annual performance rating?)
APR 3 4 5 S. Mgr 1% 2% 3% Mgr 2% 3% 4%
Our tipster stated that the percentages were supposed to represent "minimum raise." Hard what to make of this as rumors have been all over the board from "They told us not to have very high expectations," to " Per my discussions with an Office Managing Partner and a National Practice Leader .... raises should be close to (if not the same) as prior year." But considering there's an expensive legal battle on the horizon, maybe this isn't so crazy? Discuss.
