Welcome to Citi...lucky if you get 1% bonus, they'll skimp at any opportunity they get and blame you for not getting any.

It doesn’t always correlate that way. I’ve gotten the highest ranking 4 times and have gotten anywhere from 0%-3%, which might as well be nothing. The year I got 0% my manager’s manager said that everyone under his umbrella was getting 0%. He gave some bogus song and dance reason. Yes, I’ve heard it all. “Well you need to be in a group that makes money”, so you move to those groups. Then you hear “Well you need a role that does something new and not just keep the lights on”. Etc…whatever. So, now I do just enough to keep from getting fired and my bonus is the same. What’s my motivation to give long hours? It certainly isn’t reward.

If you really got a 0% bonus that was months ago. And meant you got a cr-p rating. Time to leave.

Thus the job hopping for higher pay to offset what you are NOT getting.

Use this experience as motivational fuel to muster great enthusiasm on a job search for a company that has no qualm on paying you what you are worth. Don’t fool yourself into thinking that it’ll be better next year, it won’t.
