    Are they still a thing? How much did you get? My cheap ass company stopped giving bonuses a couple of years ago. It used to be cash in an envelope with the amount depending on how long you have been with the company.

    This year they canceled the Xmas party too. Some of the office people tried to throw a pot luck during work hours(no booze). It was poorly attended. I was much too busy to stop in.

    That's why it's called a bonus you ungrateful ass wipe. Some years are better than others.

    We usually get ours in March. Our company has two main divisions and both did well this year (which has never happened before). So we should do ok. They stopped the xmas party a few years ago. They used to do a summer picnic and xmas party. Both were dropped in the financial panic of '08. Eventually they brought back the xmas party, but not the picnic. We got a new President a few years ago and he likes picnics. So they switched. Last week we had a company catered lunch in our building. It was good.

    or 1099 employees that don't set aside any money for taxes then get fucked at the end of the year when Uncle Sam wants his money.
