Bonuses reward past work; incentives motivate future work. Unless it was the latter, you owe ‘em nothing.

Agree 100%

Take the money and run. Loyalty is not rewarded in this industry, and long term incentives are non-existent (as are raises at many agencies).

If your employment agreement doesn’t have this clause, then it’s in your absolute right to do so as you please.

It doesn’t and appreciate the legal lens.

You get a bonus?

Yeah for sure. Pretty common to hold off for bonuses, vestment, etc.

Very common.

Ideal.

Take the money and go. I missed out on a bonus to take a new opportunity, wish I could have stalled just a little longer. Cash is essential.

The perfect time to resign.

Bonuses reward past work, so congrats on a bonus and a job well done since bonuses are almost unheard of. You should feel free to move with our guilt. If the money is an incentive to stay the managers should be saying that.

The teacher shortage is a national crisis (one that was foretold decades ago). In other industries, when there is an employee shortage for a specific field, the company would increase the salary and benefits for that position because of the law of supply and demand. Why doesn't this work for education? Shouldn't teachers be paid more because we are in short supply? Should certain subjects be paid more?

Do strategy ppl find these tech implementation difficult?
