Year 2008 & 2009, i did not get any year end bonus from my job accomplishment but this year will be the first time I’m at a company where I can get an annual bonus, but I’m not holding my breath that anything is coming my way. I just have plan on how to get it and try to perform very well at current company in order to accomplish my goals.
In Malaysia, bonuses are taxed just like our regular salary. Started from this year, my current company will give out bonus based on employee performance merit and i found that this is a good motivator. I consider myself very lucky to work under such a pay scale company and find myself very rarely complaining about my job. Sometimes, I might work late or a bit pressure when I need to have very high job satisfaction.
