Bonus Time!

I just got out of a meeting with my boss. I got a 5% bonus this year - more than last year. I think I'm happy with that, although I kind of feel like I should have pushed for more. He was very complimentary of my job this year and had no criticism of my competence. 

Do you get a yearly bonus? How are you feeling about your position?

I get a quarterly bonus that averages about 8% annualized.

Sweet!!

I don't really get a bonus per say. Sometimes my boss feels generous and gives us a little extra Christmas cash, but nothing crazy.

Also, I am confident I could be at this job the rest of my life if I chose to take that route. But I'm not. ;)

I get a yearly bonus, but not until Feb. I feel pretty good about my bonus.

My company is set up on a quarterly bonus system for all employees. Lots of factors are included, so it's not just based on financial performance or job performance. The max is 15% but could be more if the financials are super-stellar. Everyone in the company gets the same percent. It's a good bonus, for sure!

That's really nice! We don't get yearly bonuses. We did get a bonus last year, but it was supposed to make up for the fact that we weren't being given raises. It was hardly worth it, after taxes came out. I don't think they ever have heard the end of that one... we got raises this year. LOL

We get a yearly Christmas bonus. I'm grateful for a bonus because I know a lot of people don't get one. I haven't had a raise in about 5 years which sucks, but I do get an excuse year after year about why he "can't" give a raise.

 We get a bonus in Feb and a yearly raise as long as we are performing.

No bonus.

But, I have a job. That's good enough for me. I don't complain about not getting a bonus.

That's great!

We don't get bonuses and overall what we do isn't appreciated. I am currently looking for a new job.
