Bonus Watch ’12: Whole Bunch Of Financial Services Employees Will Get Nothing, May Or May Not Like It

Santa will leave many bankers and traders empty-handed this holiday season. One in five Wall Streeters won’t get a bonus for 2012, according to a closely watched compensation study set to be released next week. That figure is up sharply from last year, when roughly 13% of bonus-eligible employees got no added year-end pay, according to Options Group, a New York executive search and consulting firm that produced the study. In terms of overall compensation, some staff in stocks and derivatives trading are likely to be the hardest hit, as their compensation is set to shrink by at least 20% for the third year in a row, the study found. A stock trader who is a managing director at a securities firm stands to take home as little as $550,000, down 31% from 2011. Sluggish deal activity means investment bankers also could receive a 13% pay cut, the study found. [WSJ]

    Is that a Pringles mustache across her breasts, or is she just unhappy to see me?

  4. $550,000 ain't bad considering an MD base is typically "only" $450,000. If a $100,000 bonus and no bonus is the minimum on top of such a huge base, let's PARTAY BABY!
