Your Two Cents: Did You Get a Holiday Bonus?

Gone are the days of wishing for an out-of-space convertible, yacht or a duplex for Christmas — especially from the boss — but you might just get a check. The companies that are in the financial predicament to dish out bonuses typically share the wealth during the holidays as a way to build morale and show employees how much they are appreciated. We all know pay raises were barely there in 2009, so most of us have plenty of ways we'd spend some extra cash. Did your company gift you a holiday bonus?

To tell the truth, I was shocked when I received one because I'm only an intern but have been with the company for awhile now.

yes, and i heard that our company does it every year (this is my first year here). considering the economical circumstances, our company did quite well, and rewarded its hardworking employees for it. :) too bad all of the money is already all spent on my end... :(
