Last year, Cravath moved the Monday after Thanksgiving, so we are fairly close.

Why not a UP option? Given that year’s workload has been overwhelming....

It’s been busy and we were told what a gangbusters year it was, on track to be the best ever, blah blah blah

Bonuses will be flat.

Boomer partners will have a collective heart attack if they have to raise the year end bonus after having conceded NYC to 190k and summer bonus this year

If you interpret the summer bonus as catching up the salary raise for the first half of the year, the summer bonuses were actually as follows:

2017: $0
2016: $2,500
2015: $5,000
2014: $5,000
2013: $10,000
2012+: $12,500

A few people have complained that the poll options were underinclusive, so I have edited accordingly.

You don't want to include an "up" option?

The first two ATL bonus notes I saw were for Kaplan and Wilkinson doing elite boutique things, and gave up there being anything interesting happening in bonus season.

Unless you think Fried Frank paying for basically corpses on 130% bonuses is good news.
