My group of 30+ colleagues achieved 25% of the total products out of a group of 700 colleagues. That's right, 5% of the group did 25% of the work.

And no bonus. To top it off, we are hearing it is likely that we will only average 2.5% raises this year so relative to cost of living we are screwed.

Oh, and I pay $200 a month out of my paycheck for benefits. So why don't you auto industry guys cry a little more. You have it so rough.

Son, you must be mistaking me for a union guy. "Auto Industry" doesnt mean all UAW. There is a whole segment of 'not quite an engineers' like me. I am limbo between white collar and blue collar. I get treated like **** AND make ****ty money.

Truthfully you and I are not so far apart. My group of 25-30's contract pays the salaries of a few managers while we get to make 1/5 of what they do.

I was one of the lucky few here who got a raise this year. It is tied directly to performance and billable hours. Some of us got as much as 10% and most people who only performed average or below average did not receive an increase at all.

We don't get a bonus but we do get profit sharing. It gets deposited in our 401Ks every February. It is usually a pretty good amount too.

I am hoping to get hired on full-time at the agency I work at. If this happens, it would be right around Christmas time and would be a great bonus!

my company gives out profit sharing.

Although they do not have a certain %, they adjust it to their liking every year.

Last year we had an amazing year, but yet the profit sharing check was small.

2 years ago it was only $75, last year it was $400. Our company did amamzing last year.
