Re: Bonus day

I checked my diary but it appears I only have 31 days this month as usual. Too bad, a bonus day would be really handy this week.

You do realize most of us don't even get bonuses and still like our jobs.

Re: Bonus day

OMG must I post in October when my bonus day comes around?

I'm sure there will be some posting next month on the 20th on this very topic too.

I assume we'll have some BS about how 120'000 is not enough.

The best bonus day is often followed up with registered letters to HR and your boss

Re: Bonus day

I think it is a conspiracy that the people who do get a bonus get it one month AFTER winter sale... as nobody can expect executives to be not impulse driven, it must be the bonus that keeps Swiss retail alive - so the payment has to be scheduled in a month were everything costs the full list price plus another ten percent on top...

I do not get a bonus, but I cannot be "angry" about it - the bonus is nowadays hardly something surprising or on top, it is part of the package you are offered - with a tiny bit of uncertainty. If everyone gets one in your company on your level, it is not something you get for good work, but simply a part of your renumeration. I'd personally prefer to simply get more each month, but that is just me.

Well....... next year is a leap year so you will both get your bonus day in February.


Talking about income is a rude and uncomfortable topic.

Nope, even better. Mine comes the same month as the canton/federal tax bill (April).

Re: Bonus day

Quite a few threads dedicated to salaries, bonuses and general talk about money... I can smell pay day in the air... Anyone else feeling this green sensation!
