X-mas bonus 2011 thread

This year I got my bonus a day early. $100 cash . Could be better but I'm thankful for anything.

I don't get mine until the end of our fiscal year in March.

But it is usually a good one.

I give them out, I don't get them. So I always include enough fees that they actually owe me money.

I got one week's pay. I would have been happy with pretty much anything, so it was a pleasant surprise. That extra cash has ended up really coming in handy, too.

Nada. We used to get Visa gift cards or something comparable, but this year we get squat. Annual bonus in March should be good, though.

10% of my base, which was pretty nice since I just got a promotion.

Anyone that uses the term "fiscal year" and actually knows what it means usually geta a good one.


$1000 for me or $970 and change because SSI was taken out.

Big fat zero here. Although in this economy, I suppose actually having a full-time job can be considered a "bonus", so I'm not complaining!

I remain employed - that works for me.

Lost a position I had for 11 years in Oct 2010, and scored my current gig 7 weeks later. Similar pay, less stress. I'm happy. So many people out of work I can't bitch too much about no bonus. Just glad for the steady paycheck....

Actually, just got my check for being a school board member. About $800. I consider that my Christmas bonus each year. $50 a meeting. I keep trying to get them to schedule one each day, but they won't.

Only $100? You can do better. How many times did she come?

No bonus here, but I wasn't expecting one to begin with.
