It's a sign of the times. We received notification of our bonus payout, and it is the smallest that most of my coworkers can remember.

I was hoping to buy something cool, but it looks like my plans have changed.

For those wondering, it was 5.5% this quarter (based on salary earned during the quarter).

Have not seen a bonus of any sort for about 5-6 years.

Last one was a tad shy of a grand. I am not a big fan of them, seems like the government gets more of a bonus off of them then I do.
Just pay me more throughout the year.

A little under 1% and a few days time off.

Last bonus was in 2007 and it was less than half a days pay.

I am of the same mindset. Taxes fuck up everything on bonuses.

I got a 2% pay raise about 9 years ago.

I think I got about a 4k raise this year. No bonus, which is great. Raise > Bonus. The gift that keeps giving.

get them quarterly but usually totals around 4K/year ( before getting raped in taxes)

The first two paid my trips out to see Dad this year, the third got me a Browning High Power, this last one put a sizable payment on an AR10.

HAHHAHAHAAHHAH Where I work! Keep dreaming. Where I work does the bare minimum for holidays. I have today off, not tomorrow. Then I only get Christmas eve and Christmas day. That's it! I work for a bunch of greedy bastards who will have tomorrow off, and probably go skiing the whole week of Christmas. They do not hesitate to take the holidays off, but fully expect you to work. If I call in sick tomorrow I don't get paid for today.

In good years anywhere from 50-75% of my base.
In avg years 25%-35%.
In bad years 15-20%.
Link Posted: 11/22/2012 8:14:07 AM EST
Bonus goes into annual wages. Last one was fairly sizable.

However, it's in stock, to be paid out once it vests. Bi-Annually.

I hate waiting.

4.72 % on total earnings
we also got furlough for Thanksgiving and Christmas
Link Posted: 11/22/2012 8:17:14 AM EST
Last year I got a great bonus. Almost 10% of my annual salary. I try not to count on it and don't expect it and am just happy to work. It sure is nice when I get those though.

Link Posted: 11/22/2012 8:17:40 AM EST
Our annual review time is in March. Last year, was a 5% raise, and a 19% bonus. Probably get a 1% raise, and 0% bonus this year.

I usually file tax exempt before my bonus, but I am in vacation for 3 weeks and wouldn't be able to change it back quick enough.

Earn about $1400 in bonus + spiffs every month. No quarterly or yearly bonus.
Link Posted: 11/22/2012 8:21:46 AM EST
Mine is based on gross income for that year and depends on what the company puts the percentage at factoring in performance, safety and money earned.

Worked out to $7900 last year. Should be close to 9K this year.

At my place a Christmas bonus is 1 to 2 weeks pay depending on the year. This year has been pretty good (all things considered).
Link Posted: 11/22/2012 8:29:08 AM EST
0-20% performance based bonus each year.

My boss bought us pizza yesterday. Does that count?
Link Posted: 11/22/2012 8:36:08 AM EST
My last bonus was just shy of $17K.

Of course that's before the government gets done making sure others get their "fair share" of the bonus that I busted my ass for.

Not sure how it'll go this year. I haven't heard rumors of what the division and corporate bonus modifiers will be. I don't think this has been quite as good a year for us as last, but we'll see. We still have one quarter to go.

Boeing has something called Employee Incentive Program for the engineers (others get it too, just not sure who) where the company sets goals at the beginning of the year and if we meet those goals we get anywhere from 0 to 20 days of pay in bonus. Meeting the goals is 10 days, depending on how much you exceed the goals will determine how many days above 10 you get and not meeting the goals will net you less than the 10 days of pay. They take what you earned the year previous, divide by 2080 (normal hours worked in a year) multiply by 8 and then multiply again by the number of days rewarded. It's pretty nice because if you worked a lot of OT that will bump up your calculated hourly salary for the previous year. I think last year we got 14 or 15 days of extra pay, basically a bonus check of 3 weeks pay.

I'm holding out for 10K. If it is a penny less than 5K I'm gonna be pissed.

Scratch that. If it is a penny less than 10K I'm gonna be pissed. Holding out for 15K or north of it.

The year I didn't get a raise (even though I had a great evaluation, HR said my pay was much higher than others with the same title and HR didn't want to make the chasm greater by giving me a raise) so instead I got a 2% of my annual wages bonus. I should have received a 3-3.5% raise if things had gone normally. I started looking for another job within the company where I wasn't topped out.

got my deferred compensation bonus yesterday, it was 5k(90k salary). we get our annual cash bonus in march, expecting a good one we've been ridiculously busy and making good margin on our packages.

hoping for 12-15 percent.

Due to a slow fourth quarter we were forced to take a 7 day furlough, then we were told we would be getting a 4% bonus. So at the end i might break even or make a little extra. It could be worse.
