Bonus info "started rolling in last night / this morning at Barcap and the mood isn't good." Numbers people have heard, plus deferral levels and splits:

"Hearing 95-150 bonus range for first year associates in coverage and M&A, with 35% of anything over 100 deferred over 3 years (split 50/50 cash/stock). Midpoint for total comp is probably 230-240 this year, down from 265 last year. News coming out of product groups (ECM, DCM and Lev Fin) and S&T is much worse -roughly half of what we got upstairs."

The juniorest of mistmakers have received their numbers (and a little perspective). "Barclays first year analyst bonuses: massive range, 20k-55k. Analysts got 20k, 25k, 35k, 40k, 45k, and 55k at top. Most groups are expecting cuts within the next few months so while some people are dissatisfied, most are just happy to have jobs."
