This is what happens when six-figure sums are allocated to 50-person groups.

- S&T analysts and associates received "2500 USD equivalent" (yes, analysts and associates got the same amount)

- Those higher up the food chain received "peanuts or nothing"

Having said all that, people are apparently attempting to view the giant Toberlone package as half-full, noting: Most of us are just hoping not to get fired in this job market.

Numbers for first and second year analysts (who are not happy). "It's been two weeks since UBS numbers came out and nobody wants to talk about it, for obvious reasons. Second years (base: 80k) ranging 45-65k and heard of some first years getting around 40k (base: 70k). And they could only achieve these numbers ("in line with the street") after firing 30+ analysts right before communication day."

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."
