I’ve worked my nuts off this year, as well as managing the site I personally have been the main groundworker on a project just short of a million quid. So whilst I wouldn’t have been that busy solely managing the site I’ve saved a fair chunk by doing the ground works rather than it being subbed out.Posted 4 years ago
Nothing in my contract at all so all at the owners discretion.miketuallySubscriber
We don’t get bonuses, regardless of performance. We did get a pay rise, of 1%, this year, which is the first for three or four years. Decent pension, but our contributions have increased so a reduced take home each month.
We pay for our Christmas meal too, though get one drink on arrival paid for.Posted 4 years ago
I was chatting to a pal recently who told me that his organistion has kindly organised a Christmas lunch….but then sent a memo round saying should anyone imbibe any alcohol at all and then go back to the office they would be in breach of their employment contract and apprpriate steps would be taken (ie termination). Should they wish to drink, they must not return and take a half day’s holiday, so long as there was appropriate cover.
I’m not promoting drunkeness in the workplace, but that seemed particularly mean-spirited and heavy-handed.Posted 4 years agoglobaltiMember
Blimey, who do you lot work for where your employers are doing well?!
As above, just still having a job in 2014 would be fantastic.
Just been given a 100% creditworthiness rating by Dunn & Bradstreet and currently investing about £6m of our own cash in a new robotic production facility in a brand new building, which will triple our production capacity. Not everyone is doing badly in the UK!Posted 4 years agocoopersport1Member
Armed Forces so we’ll probably get another 3yr pay freeze and be forced on to a new pension scheme that no one wants but can’t do anything about. Nice bonus for 10yrs of full time Operations. Of course the Army Reserve will be there to pick up the pieces!Posted 4 years ago
I know choose your trade! 😆officialtobMember
Reading some of the above, I suddenly feel much better.
We get a full-attendance bonus of £250 just before Xmas (which I’ll be getting this year *inserts halo smiley*). Plus the company pays for all food/drinks at the Xmas party. Cue lots of amazing inappropriateness 😈Posted 4 years ago
