Idea for a new name....... "Boatowner formally known as Boatless". Now don't laugh "Prince" thought it was great.

I work for a nonprofit organization and I like to do volunteer work. At work a bonus typically is an extra floating holiday day.

The biggest bonus for me is seeing tangible improvements, that are direct results of my skills and work, that make my city/ state a better place for everyone.

100 years from now nobody will know or care about who I am (and that's OK with me), but they will still enjoy some of the things I have accomplished. That is a bonus.

Congrats on your bonus.

Didn't they take out uncle sam's portion already? It's typically in the 40-50 % range.

I worked for a privately held firm for a number of years and our bonuses were typically 10-15% of our salary in an average business year and in peak years, sometimes better.

Eight years ago, it was bought by a publicly held company that is super to work for. However, now they only give out bonuses to the top performers...only about 1000 out of 42000 will get bonuses. We're very focused on dividends to the shareholders.

I should feel lucky as I did get a bonus a few years ago.....its one of those things with the ratio of bonuses to employees that if you get one, you say thanks to upper mgmt and don't say a word to anyone else.

We get bonuses in sales.... they are quarterly so make up a big part of the paycheck and they are usually 6 digits in total for the year. This helps when you have a crappy base salary!

Sorry guys,

Was too busy counting dollar bills, just kidding. No, I didn't get a $600,000.00 bonus figure. It is a lot less than that but enough to pay for all the big bills. And if enough is less, would be time for you know what. :D
