First, Haynes and Boone, which opts for a black-box construction:
Blackbox bonus construction, however looks like it was full match throughout the board. Full market bonus and particular bonus. No bonus for billing above the 2000 hour threshold, which many discover disappointing. Typically, associates appear blissful that HB continues to match the usual market and particular bonus quantities – however irritating that issues aren’t all the time clear on this “black field” mannequin.
