Bonus Watch '12: Counting JPMorgan's Bonuses Before They've Hatched


Assuming the last quarter is an indication of the next three and- fingers crossed- nothing goes catastrophically wrong, JPMorgan employees may be looking at raises next year.

Bankers at J.P. Morgan, the investment banking unit of JPMorgan Chase (JPM), are in line for a 34% raise this year, if the bank keeps paying at its torrid first-quarter clip.The investment bank set aside $3.3 billion for compensating its 26,494 workers in the first quarter. That's equivalent to $124,330 for the quarter and projects to $497,320 for the year.
