    Christmas Bonus

    Each year our bonuses get better. This year we have accomplished everything we set out to do, while cutting our burn rate way down. I hope we get bonuses this year, I will know by the end of next week.

    Vote for the bonus you're getting this year.

    meh, being that im overpaid and underworked (ha, and kidding) I don't expect anything.

    I've only been here 1.5 months.
    i woke up one morning and i stepped out of bed | had to get a bike, had to paint it red
    Of all the treasures I have, it’s the memories that are the most precious.

    If I'm lucky, I might get a pat on the back from the director, but only if I bring something good to the Christmas party.

    I'll get a $125 Christmas bonus, my wife will get $25 (we get $25 for each Christmas season we work for the company). I'll also get a profit sharing bonus, which I'm told is supposed to be quite good this time. The last one was about $1k, and this one is supposed to be better. I'll know in a week & a half.

    If it's the same as last 2 years, then we're getting $25 AmEx gift cheques. I'm not going to complain; I have a good job that I like, and I'm paid well.

    Although, The Girl is with Microsoft and their bonuses are obscene. One year her bonus package was nearly what I net in a year.

    I work on Wall Street. My bonus went from an embarrassing amount to zero in one year. Jelly of the month sounds good now.

    As usual, our Christmas bonus is a 20ish lb turkey. Our actual monetary bonuses don't come out till spring.

    My company doesn't give Christmas bonuses.

    I consider it a bonus that we're making money and continuing to hire new employees while other companies are having layoffs.

    Not only do I never get a bonus, the wife had her position eliminated. They gave her a new position at the same base salary, but no bonus, effective first of the year. That will put a major dent in our budget.

    No bonus, and greatly reduced hours from September to the end of the year due to the economy.

    I'm a stay at home dad. There's no bonus in this job. Though the kids more than make up for it.

    Some sort of pithy irrelevant one-liner should go here.
