Bonus Watch '09: HSBC

  • Author:

It's bonus day at the acronym-hating Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation. According to one antsy employee, "40 days post year end seems like an awfully long time to put numbers together," and the rumor in the ranks is that the firm "waited to see what BoA and UBS were doing to come up with their plan of attack." This should bode well for staff hoping to be compensated in Pop Rocks (paid out over a decade, natch). For the others, our (possibly premature, unnecessary) condolences.
