Default Christmas bonuses?

Hi guys,
I was thinking about something with Christmas approaching, how many guys still see christmas bonuses?
Just curious how common or uncommon the practice is anymore.

We get yearly bonuses that are paid at the beginning of March, but no Christmas bonuses. They're called "holiday supplements" in the politically correct world, btw.....

Not even a party. We generally get bonuses though in the Feb-Mar time period, I'll have to wait and see.
Merry Christmas at any rate to you all.

We've typically always gotten bonuses. This year it just wasn't possible. We typically also have either a Christmas dinner or luncheon provided by the company. This year we were told there wasn't enough money to do it, so we elected to do a potluck luncheon.

This is a good question Joe. I feel like yes it does, I have worked places that give just little items of appreciation, and there are guys that really seem annoyed by it. I personally think if they slip me a 20$ bill even I would be happier than nothing.

It's good to hear there are guys still getting them for sure, I hope most employers try to do something, a little aoppreciation goes a long way. I have worked for guys (where I was the only employee even) that regardless of the profit they make they gave bonuses, that carries a lot of weight with me, shows a level of appreciation I think.

Me three. Although I can't complain that they don't give or do anything for the holidays: I have a good job, I get to work from home and my boss lives in Tennessee (I'm in California).

My company gives annual bonuses. They are calculated by the amount of profit the company makes in the year they are awarded, and can be between 0% and 15% of an employees annual income. In a good year the average employee will recieve upwards of 10K. This year I got about 2.7K, not great, but still a big help around Christmas time.

I own a small business and give my 7 employs 10% of the profit divided equally between them

Merry Christmas to everyone!

Talking Re: Christmas bonuses?

I plan to give myself a generous bonus again this year
If it's okay with the misses

Seriously, I always received a performance bonus when working full time for over 30 years.
It was usually based on division goals and major project completions.
I not only expected it - it was part of every contract and renewal throughout my professional career
Being semi-self employed now I haven't received one in several years - but I build it into my contract and billing anyway

As far as 'party' - I don't care if the company sponsors one or not.
I normally get together with major contractors and personnel for a 'long-wet' "lunch" ...
I work with these folks and if I want party any more I'll invite them over to my place during one of our holiday get togethers.
