Bonus Watch ’14: EY Auditors Get a Pat on the Back

We're hearing a couple rumors that the audit practice is giving out free money, anyone else?

Some people are understandably skeptical (though obviously aren't familiar with the phrase don't look a gift horse in the mouth):

FYI EY leadership awarded all Assurance Staff through Senior Managers $500 in the 5/30 paycheck. Leadership has never issued an across-the-board "bonus" like this. They must be alarmed by how many people have been rushing the exits. Not that this will make any difference.

While others are stoked — STOKED, I tell you — at a free pittance:

Subject: EY Assurance – WE GETTIN PAID!

All of EY Americas Assurance staff through sr manager just received a $500 bonus payable 5/30!  Gross payment, of course, but it's nice to finally receive a higher net "thank you" than my senior manager once taxes are factored out.

Hey, nothing wrong with being treated to a nice dinner out (with drinks!) and a few XBox games for all your hard work.

Keep an eye on those paychecks, kids, and if you have bonus news to share with the class, you know where to find us.
