While first year analysts at several major U.S. banks, including Goldman Sachs Group Inc., are looking forward to fatter paychecks, it seems their European counterparts can brace themselves for relative austerity. Credit Suisse Group AG and Deutsche Bank AG are monitoring the situation and haven’t made any decisions yet on increasing salaries, people close to the banks say.

It’s not clear whether Barclays will do the same for its operations in Europe. UBS AG said it was comfortable with the current mix of pay and bonuses, according to one person familiar with the matter.
