Annual reviews are performed around the fall. Appraisals do not guarantee a bonus or a raise, especially in the first year. There is no guarantee of raise or bonus -regardless of the status of financial standing with the company. However, it has been the norm that at the end of the fiscal year, we offer both bonus and raise (raise based upon COLA and if we are awarded additional amounts as a result of our president negotiations with the CFO of parent company) and bonus based upon EOY financial standing.

We are utilizing a minimum 1% of annual salary up to standard 3% salary. The pattern of increase is set at a minimum 1% of annual salary up to 3% salary increase. Generally, bonus directly correlates to tenure and job title.

We usually start with the basic COLA for the year calculation, then depending on what our president and GM are able to negotiate with our parent company, we may be able to add additional amounts (in addition to COLA). If that is the case, certain (addl.) amounts are partitioned to different departments and the managers can take what is allocated to increase the standard amount. The additional amount is based upon two criteria: tenure and overall performance.
