Re: So...who still gets a Christmas Bonus?
I gave out over $45,000 in presents and bonuses to my employees this year or just over $800 per person as an average

That's up from last year

I'm not big on the holiday but I like giving people more than they expect

I remember my days working for the man, very disappointing to not get a holiday bonus

Re: So...who still gets a Christmas Bonus?
I somehow knew there would be some sort of vicious, uncalled for response to my post. Yes, I work for JPMorgan Chase, but I am nowhere near the level of employment with then that merits a bonus of epic proportions. Quite frankly, I hope to be one of the fortunate ones to be rewarded for my nights and weekends of working for them. Hopefully my wife and children will benefit this one time of year for all of the other times I've worked extra hard to gwt where I an right now.

Re: So...who still gets a Christmas Bonus?
The owner of the company I work for gives out bonuses according to performance, and not just financial performance. I've never once heard him speak of it, but I have advocated for other employees.

He recognizes successful initiatives, longevity, growth and teamwork. It's actually pretty cool. We're a small company, (<50 Full Time Employees) but I got a Check(one weeks pay), $500 in cash, a Ham and a nice bottle of Bourbon.

Re: So...who still gets a Christmas Bonus?
I work for a small company and luckily I still get a pretty good bonus each Christmas. 5 years in a row same amount. I wonder though if this will be the last year though. It's getting tougher and tougher for us to remain competitive with some of the big boys who get all the exemptions

Re: So...who still gets a Christmas Bonus?
I think it is important for people to share these thoughts with one another. We are the workers of the world and we make the possibility of fortune happen. I just think we should be rewarded with our hard work. I know some close folks who do much more than I do when it comes to making money. I just like to see people rewarded for the hard work they put in. I know social workers who live a nightmare everyday and make less than a drug dealer.
