My DH hasn't ever gotten a Christmas bonus. It would be nice to get one!
Awesome ! My hubby gets his today!! we have been looking forward to it for a while now :)
A couple years ago my husband got a Christmas bonus. Hope he gets one this year.
My husband's work got away with not doing bonuses last year so I really doubt they'll do it this year. The stupid thing is that he works for a multi-million dollar tech company in a big city and the Christmas bonuses were $50 gift cards to random places, so to not even do that is just ridiculous.
But then, the company also didn't meet sales goals and opted not to pay out the BIG bonus in the spring that everyone counts on, not even a small percent of them. My husband worked his butt off because his bonus was supposed to be $10,000 - he more than pulled his weight and all his bosses give him lip service and tell him how much he has done for the company, but when it came down to the actual cash bonus they did NOTHING instead of the promised $10,000. I would have understood doing $1000 instead, $100, anything - just a token, not take away the lousy $50 Christmas gift card AND the big spring bonus and not try to make it up in any way. And when he quits in 6 months they're going to be screwed, but do you think they'll even make the connection that maybe they could have kept him if they treated him better (knowing that other companies are trying to lure him away with really great offers?) Nope, they'll cry and the entire arm of the company that my husband handles will fall to heck because he can't even go on a week long vacation without someone calling multiple times to help with something or another because my husband is apparently the only person who can problem solve.
Sadly, Christmas bonuses are a thng of the past for a lot of companies. So, glad you guys received one this year! =)
