My bonus was even smaller than I expected. My company calculates profit-sharing bonuses on a division level, so it doesn’t matter that I did well, the location I work at did well, and the subdivision it is part of did well – because of a few profit-sucking black holes in the division, our bonuses amount to just about squat.
Oh, and they just sent us all a mailing informing us that because of new regulations, they will only be handing out stock options to employees who make over $140k (e.g. managers). Somtimes I think this place wants me, and everyone else who actually performs real work, to quit.
