raise and bonus

February 15th, 2007 at 08:25 pm

Got a merit raise and a bonus today. Recieved the most allowed by company. 3% merit and over 7K bonus. Very nice.

The only thing I have a problem with the is the companies policy of putting 85% of employees in one band called performing. There a 3 bands total. Needs work, performing and leader. The manager is only allowed to give one leader rating in her entire group of about 60 people. I don't understand why companies do that. Where is the incentive to work harder if you are going to get the same rating as someone who does half the work you do?

Regardless of the band my manager thinks I'm a star and rewarded that by giving me the most she could. Nice.

Finished reading the library book Twelve Sharp by Janet Evanovich. Mystery. Latest Stephanie Plum book. Really good.
