Holy cripes! Congrats, stosh!

I think I'd actually crap myself if I was handed a bonus check worth 1.5 months of pay. My bonus equaled about 5.5 days pay, but I'll take it.

Congrats!

You both suck, I haven't seen a "bonus" ever. My last job, I quit a month before they got an 8% (of your annual base) bonus. I will be there for both bonuses this year, dammit!

Whoa! Sweet bonus. :)

I won't know what my bonus is until the end of our fiscal year but its typically 5% of earnings.

A company that puts out 10% bonuses should really consider amending their pay packets of guaranteed compensation, the potential of missing that huge bonus next year runs seems like a serious de-motivator!

When I was in the IT contract business, deadline bonuses could be up to 20% of project compensation. One missed deadline and the entire project could become unprofitable.

That sucked. :monkey:

Congrats Stosh! :D

Your luckier than me. No bonuses were paid this year at my work, company was sold for just over $1 billion to some Australians and made a record profit, but the new Aussie owners are tight ass employers and don't give bonuses. :(

I actually had them adjust the taxes a little.
Maybe I had them adjust them to much. OH well, we had a kid this year, we should be ok.

My bonus this year is equal to about 100 days. All Saturdays and Sundays. Company cancelled the bonus program this year because they said there was no way to fairly distribute the bonuses. Executive management still gets bonuses, that is fair I guess.

Satisfaction of a job well done is worth more than any bonus check.

My dad is a president of a division for a national home building company and he said a couple years ago a president from another division got a 1.5 million dollar bonus, and his annual salary was only 250k.
