I have recently received an offer from a top strat consulting house and there was no mention whatsoever of a bonus in the contract, not even discretionary. However, some employees had told me they had received a bonus at the end of the year.
Is it possible to receive a bonus, even if this was not mentioned in the contract?
Do consulting firms (e.g. MBB) tend to pay bonuses to entry-level employees (e.g. associate, business analyst)? In those istances, is this possibility specifically mentioned in the contract or is it not, and you could just be 'surprised' at the end of the year?
