Do you receive a Christmas (or Holiday, or End of Year) Bonus from your Employer?

If so, what sector do you work in?

I do not, and I work in education. My wife does, and she works in the medical field. Her bonus is about $2,000.

I'm a SAHM mom now, but worked in finance for many year, as does my husband now. Big bonuses, larger than the salary.

It depends on company performance.

On a regular good year, it's 10% of annual income. 75% of the bonus will be paid before Christmas and 25% during Feb next year.

I work in corporate finance for a subscription business.

DH gets no bonus. He works in academia.

I work in the FinAid office for the local college. Not a thing.

My wife and mom work for the same school system (private) and they get a bonus, $500. Plus all the stuff parents give.

My husband and I work in education and get no bonus (nor would we expect one). My daughter works in the medical field and hers was about $3500.

Husband works for a city and county agency - so no

Actually our big "bonus" is that they will be able to end the 5 furlough days he had last year. Furlough for us meant five days in a year where the city shuts down and no one gets paid. A full week with no pay in a year was hard - so happy that it is over.

And yes, thankful he has a good job that uses his degree and for the most part he likes.

Mine is like this too. My "bonus" varies from 0-30% of my pay. My husband works for the same company and his varies from 0-16%. We work in property insurance. We get 75% in Dec and the rest in Jan/Feb

DH does not get a Christmas bonus, just a bonus at a different time of the year.

It varies anywhere between 17% and 28% of his salary. It all depends on how well the company did the year before.

yes. i work at a relatively large church (large when you consider there are 385 churches in our county! can't sling a dead cat without hitting a church around here! lol), and the church board voted us each a week's pay for our Christmas bonus this year. we got our bonuses thanksgiving week, because the pastor wanted us to be able to take advantage of black friday. i had just bought myself a new, DSLR camera, so my bonus helped pay for that.

I work in television. We got 1 1/2 weeks pay. Last year it was $0. The couple years before that was a week.

I'm currently self employed, but worked for companies for 15+ years. I never worked at one that offered a Christmas bonus. Some offered profit-sharing programs that paid out a "bonus" but they were never at the holidays. And some companies offered some "perks" around the holidays (parties, outings, catered lunch, etc.) but never a monetary bonus. I worked for a computer software company, an advertising agency, an insurance company, and a major electronic commerce company.

My husband works for a large insurance company and they never get monetary bonuses either, but they do have a lot of parties outings.
