We had our annual Christmas party. All the employees got something based on your work catagory and senority.

So I get a little package. A fucking pair of socks. Not even cotton socks. 0% cotton, 80% acrylic, 20% nylon fucking socks. 5 sizes too big. Looks like one of their leftovers from the company logo sale they had during the summer.

My office manager got $150 and the other girls a little less.

Oh almost forgot I also got a fucking turkey or $12 gift cert to Gordon Foods.

Whoopee Doopee. Bahhumg!

Forgot the family style fucking dinner. Over cooked baked chicken and watery salad. At least the beans were decent.



ETA: Gave me the runs not 2 hours after the meal.

This year it was a 10% bonus. Last year it was a little over 11%, but it was a different firm.

I shall presume now is not a good time to divulge my Christmas bonus(es).

At least you didn't get any frozen speculums.

The wife got $100 - not bad, considering that she trimmed four steps and 6 weeks off of the closeout procedure for their ACOE contract procedures...and closed 12 pending contracts, some up to two years old. And most of that was before she got picked up from temp...

The City?

They'll tell us we're lucky to have a job.

My opinion: I work hard for X hours. You pay me for work. You dont' owe me more.

That said...He usually comes across with a K or more.

I don't care. I don't count on it. If you do, you're stupid.

We had our christmas party at the end of one day, and it was all food. I didn't eat much because "christmas party with beer" translated very closely into intern-speak as "the intern can vanish early!"

The guy who's desk I took over did leave a pretty sweet "Jane's" pen when he cleared out. Score.

Two $20 gift cards for a local store.

I work at a non-profit.

not even a "go fuck yourself"

I work for a company that cares...

I got a email from the no good Cheif and his little boyfriend the Deputy Cheif sayingg Merry Christmas and happy new year. In these e-mails it explained that they both were going to be on vacation from the 23rd to the 4th. Yee Fucking Haw I get to work both weekends and wont even be able to spend my first Christmas with my 4 month old baby. I can't wait to move out of state next year and tell them to fuck off. Christmas bonus whats that we dont even get overtime for the holidays.

My department suck donkey balls, but it pays the bills until i move.

A calendar with pictures of my department, a 2 departments I previously worked for, and 9 other departments I couldn't give a shit about or completely fucking hate, like the Goddamned Parking Nazis.

It will be my luck that asshole Murphy (you know, the one with the laws) will leave me a big fat steaming parking ticket on Thursday, the last day of the work-year.

Missed then $100 bonus. so nothing
Link Posted: 12/21/2005 4:44:33 AM EDT
Nothing, no Christmas bonus, gift or party.
They don't even put up 1 Christmas decoration.
As long as the paycheck keeps coming. Although I did get a stock option awhile back.

got more then the big fat zero the hubby got. He's worked there a little over 10 years now and still gets a zero, along with the other 900+ employees.
I don't work outside the house so I don't get anything from an employer either.

Nothing but a potluck lunch, that I had to help pay for. Our large fortune 500 company "gifted" us employees an hour to eat it.

iPod Nano. Actually a cheap way for the company to appease the employees....we never get any bonuses, so they just gave us crapy little iPods, costing £120, and everyone's happy because they're al shiny....

Boss took us out to breakfast this morning.
Company "Holiday party" had free open bar and awsome expensive food. I probably ate and drank well over $100 worth.

In February they will probably give a "profit sharing bonus" of about $1000.

Been with this company 10 years, a manager for 3.
I got a $35 gift card to Harris Teeter (a grocery store, the most expensive grocery store in our area.)
I try not to complain since some people don't get anything but dam.

We always get the holiday week off with pay, but since I'm a millwright I'll be turning wrenchs all week. We also received around 5k in bonuses this yr. So we're treated fairly good
Link Posted: 12/21/2005 9:29:03 AM EDT
Our company doesn't give xmas bonuses, but the boss is taking us out for brazilian bbq and lotsa beer this week.

(they do match 100% any charitable contributions (up to 5k) that we make for chrismas. < 150 people, and we managed to give over 100k to katrina relief.)

$100 in a christmas card, signed by the owner (there are 270+ people in my company), full basket with EVERYTHING needed to make a proper Xmas dinner from the honey baked ham to candy canes-probably 30lbs, catered lunch party in the plant, work for 4 hours get paid for 8, and handed a $3000 bonus check, before taxes, on the way out the door with a handshake and a thankyou.

I don't realy know my company owner, but he's definitely a good guy. Very responsible to the people in the plant and even goes as far as lobbying in congress (testified in the steel tarrif hearings) down to sponsoring the parade in the town the company is located.

The office employees got together and took up a collection for a gift for our General Manger.

We wanted to get him the old "lump of coal" joke.

Well, if you shop right, $50.00 will get you 240 pounds of Kingsford.
Home Depot had 2-20# bag for $7.98...I was put in charge of getting it.

The look on his face this morning when he came down the hall and saw 12 20# bags piled in front of his door was worth it.

Of course it was a Christmas gag gift with a long history behind it, but still, to see that he had a sense of humor about it made it all worth while.

For the record, we will use it this spring and summer for company sponsored grill outs when we have good months with no delays.

WE get nothing from 'the company'. The coworkers exchange. This years:

loaf of banana nut bread from the Jew
$20 movie tickets from the 'veteran office old bag secretary'
gourmet coffee from my imediate boss
something that is still 'in the mail' from my amish coworker
and i know my buddy in the office next to mine will probably give me a firearms-related gift tomorrow as usual
