This Options Group, which tracks all things pay and hiring related on the Street, thinks bonuses will decline as much as 5% in 2007. This would be the first bonus cut in 5 years.

Our current intelligence on this is skeptical: it's really too early to tell.
Watch the LBO market, though. If those buyouts fall apart, it could indicate deeper problems that will hit your bottom line.
