Probably the bonus. If a company is paying OT, they're probably going to be more critical of how much time things take because they don't want to pay OT.

Depends on how much OT and if the OT will be consistent and if that would be more than the bonus plus a 3 - 5% salary increase.

I'd prefer OT cause it's measurable and not based on a subjective factor

I should also note that I hate working OT unless it's 100% necessary. I place a pretty high value on my time away from work.

@SA1 for arguments sake, lets say all things are equal in terms of hours/benefits/work. Would you prefer OT and a standard raise over a guaranteed bonus that goes up based on performance.

So, at a certain point (~10 hours OT), you will go into a different tax bracket. The bonus is taxed as a gift, and performance bonuses are NOT gauranteed. Only 40% will even qualify for performance bonuses and you didn't stipulate the % that the bonus starts at and where it would to out. As an incentive to get you to work more, either works and will probably be relatively the same payout. Think the bonus keeps your salary path clear and you see your extra income all in one, rather than piece meal over the course of the year. Just my $.02.

Pretty simple break-even analysis. Do you want to work the extra hours? Or do you want to do good at your job?
