Your bonus is that you are still employed.

I don’t get it, is C2 implying that Santa is NOT real? How’d you explain my Christmas presents then?

Where's the lie? I don't see one!

Well at 7 it’s marginal

Bonus is a liberal act of the employer. If you get the bonus, then that's great. If you don't, just be happy at least you are able to keep your job. Others are still struggling just to get scheduled for an interview despite their qualifications.

Are we still talking about bonus here? Was there an agreement between you and the employer that bonus is mandatory? No one is talking about belittling the employees' value in the company. And I don't want to invalidate your feelings. Gratitude from employers can be shown different ways. Just sayin.

We got our bonus this year. It's not much but at least we received something. And yes, this is a pep talk I tell myself. lol

I am with co-worker 2! Bonus this year is like an adult version of Santa. LOL

If they gave us our bonuses all decked out in a Santa costume, I definitely wouldn't be opposed to it. Get the spirit hoing, at least.

That's one damaging way to burst someone's bubble. Lol. But Coworker 2 is not wrong at all. Coworker 1 is still uo there, I guess.

Hilarious! hahah the fact that we try to lessen the blow with humor. This is comedy gold.

Bronze at best.

Heard something similar.

We got 5% pay raise and 10-15% bonus depending on your title. I was thinking it’s less than inflation so we didn’t really get a raise; but considering the norm these days, I should count myself lucky…

Hahaha. How old is he/she? Lol. She/he might have had a strong bond with Santa.

Hey fishbowl fam - I manage the revenue recognizing department at a solar company. It’s recently come to my attention that I may be being underpaid by about 10%. Id love to approach my boss with a more solid reasoning than that I know a peer with less responsibility is being paid more than me but am not sure where to start as it’s kind of a unique role. Any suggestions or salary comparisons available?
