It likely means you are at the high end of the salary range for your position and therefore your leadership team chose to increase your compensation though bonus rather than a base salary increase. My guess is that it means you are doing a good job.
Yes. I believe merit went to another cause that was the reason given. Couched as less fortunate got yours.
I means someone else got your merit, because it funded
Bonus does have to do with the economy. My bonuses before the recession were 5 times..that is right 5 times as large as they are now. And that was 10 years ago...and I have moved 'up' in my careeer.....
Not true. Bonus has nothing with hows economy is doing. Band 5 and above gets bonuses regardless.
A bushel and a peck for everyone!
