we are speculating on this here (since raise/bonus announcements are soon).

While the consensus is tax cuts = good, there is less agreement on the magnitude of the gains and which basis to look at them (can we lower reserves? not really, should we adj pricing? maybe.). While we have done lots of testing to measure the impact, we wont truly report using the new tax basis until May (for Q1). Lots of companies will really just have to let their cycle churn to really see the impact.

Seems like some are saying "Start spending those savings" and others are saying "lets see what those savings are, then we can think about spending them". Im guessing we land somewhere in the middle this year, but my bet is we stay conservative for 2018. If we see actual growth over the 2018 year with no large changes going into 2019, then maybe Ill get excited.

As someone who uses "bonii" instead of "bonuses" you are clearly clever enough to start that thread!

Yeah, but having already started this thread, it would be better for someone else to handle the other thread. Don't want people to get tired of me.

Pure merit increase. The company doesn't not release company-wide averages.
