    This company is giving its employees a $100k bonus
    Employees of Houston-based energy company Hilcorp are scoring an epic payout.

    Some companies reward their employees with free swag, team getaways, or various deals and discounts. Others do it by dropping $100,000 in your lap.

    What sounds like a corporate fever dream really happened at Hilcorp, a Houston-based energy company that celebrated some recent success by giving each of its 1,399 a $100,000 paycheck, regardless of job title.

    "Hilcorp is a rare company that cares deeply about all of its employees,” one worker wrote in a Workplace Dynamics survey. “We are recognized for all working hard, and we all reap the benefits.”

    As the Houston Chronicle reported, Hilcorp turned a five-year development plan into a company-wide incentive program. Calling it the Dream 2015 challenge, employees were tasked with doubling Hilcorp’s rate of oil field production, net reserves of oil and gas, and overall company value. They managed to meet all of those goals last April, eight months ahead of schedule.

    "It was a stretch goal to meet that," Hilcorp CFO Shelbie Dezell told the Chronicle. "We looked at it every month and talked about it every month. Then we had a huge celebration in the corporate office and in the field after we made it."

    So how do Hilcorp’s employees plan to take advantage of their new windfall? Some will pay down their debt, Dezell said, while others will buy homes or put it toward their children’s college fund. While every Hilcorp employee received a paycheck, the total was prorated based on their time working with the company over the past five years.

    This isn’t the first time Hilcorp’s used lavish rewards to create incentive. In 2010, it gave employees a choice between a $50,000 car and $35,000 in cash. Dezell credits these programs—along with the sense of teamwork they foster—with helping the company stay afloat amidst a slump in energy prices (crude oil has dipped to around $50 a barrel).

    Hilcorp has employees in Texas, Louisiana, and Alaska, as well as the Northeast. It’s already started to work on its next five-year plan.

    This is an energy company, not healthcare.

    'Drill Baby Drill' is working.

    Actually this company is doing unbelievably well considering that oil went from a high of 140 to 35 a barrel today. Thanks again Obama.

    Do you think just maybe they make a little less money selling the same oil at $35 a barrel vs $100 ? :facepalm:

    No because people can enjoy joy riding a little more and buy more gas. You pick the absolute worst examples of everything!:haha:

    The infrastructure is already in place. They refine the gas at pennies on the dollar. They always make money hand over fist All they gotta do is sell more.
    Where the hell do you think the hundred million dollar bonuses come from?
    How is buying you cars at a cheaper price than in 1985 working out for ya?

    Does it matter that these bonuses are a true reflection of virtually no one else out there working for a living, or does that matter as long as it looks good in a troll thread for Obumbler ball-lickers?

    I wonder how many of those Wall Street types that the libs claim to hate got sweet ass bonuses this year? :coffee:
