(UPDATE) Compensation Watch ’12: The Wait Is Over at Ernst & Young

Well, it's here. After getting everyone worked up a month ago, this week marks the start of Ernst & Young's compensation sit-downs. We've gotten word that some offices got started yesterday, some are starting today, and some start later this week. There are a number of people that have sent us messages who seem to be dancing around like their bladders are about to burst, so in the interest of your health (and decluttering my inbox), you can consider yourselves relieved.

Some of you may feel joy; some of you may feel pain; some of you may feel the need to get all Chuck Norris on Jim Turley; some of you may post all your compensation information only to inadvertently post your real name and then rush to email us, begging to have it removed. Whatever compels you – the power of Christ, perhaps? – share the news. You're amongst friends.

UPDATE, Friday August 10th:
After a slow start, we've been informed that the rollout starts in earnest today and that discussions will continue for the next week or so. Try to keep your emotions in check.
