No. of Recommendations: 1
On Wall Street there is the old adage: "You eat what you kill."

So if the big deal you have been working on for months falls through, your bonus is likely to be small this year.

Still Wall Street just reported record bonuses this year. AIR, the number was $132K as the median bonus this year.

That should be enough to keep most happy if they got a bonus. But of course if the stars did not align and you got no bonus, the pressure is really on. It had better not happen again. Are you with the right firm? Did someone else screw up? And are you stuck with them?

The scorpions have been known to sting each other to death.
