    As the title says... Did you receive more than last year, as much as last year, or less than last year?

    The idea of a bonus is anathema to my job (public sector), so I get nothing except an extra day off over Christmas.

    I did get an award for a particularly good idea though, so I'm happy.

    If you are your own boss, can't you give yourself a bonus? :p

    No. He prefers to screw the workforce and laugh about it with the other shareholders come dividend time :)

    Mine seems to reckon the job security makes up for it.

    Didn't and won't get s***. The company that bought us "doesn't do that". Nor do they have holiday parties. I need a new job. Any need a senior art director with 7+ years of experience and an attitude? ;)

    Would you do me a favor and ask you if you're hiring?

    Same as last year... equal to about four days pay. My company is pro-employee, believe it or not... no other comany I know of in my industry is anywhere near as generous.:D I used to be self employed but my boss gave me too much time off for waves.

    I am bonusless, lest you can convert my students' insults into tender.

    The woman's bonus went up by a full third -- though she seemed to spend most of it today on pants. The sheer quantity of pants is vaguely ... boggling.

    I'm in retail, so no bonuses per se, but we do end up making more (commission). They changed our pay plan though, so compared to last year, it's almost a full dollar per hour less. :mad: It's better during the off seasons by a bit though.

    I thought the bonus is given out by many companies. My understanding was 5-week pay is the decent end of the year bonus.

    hmm

    The only x-mas bonus I got was my two weeks of vacation got cancelled and I am working 16 hour days, so I will have a nice big fat paycheck but will be too exhausted to spend it on holiday stuff.

    Don't get a Christmas bonus - aside from lunch, a party and drinks.

    Get a bonus in March once profits distributed - should be 15% or above this year :D

    Yeah, my company also implements the pay raise in Spring (which is not related to Xmas bonus). Even though the amount of bonus will be ultimately based on how well the company did that year, my company (and my previous one as well) base the amount of bonus based on the job performance (which is good for me).

    I thought bonuses was more of an anti-employee thing. Kind of like the santa threat for small children. Now be nice this year, or you'll get no Christmas bonus.
