Year-end review and bonus

I had my year-end review last week and was promoted to Manager (yippi), and today we were told our bonuses. The bonus whole affair is rather awkward, as one by one the team head calls us into a room and gives us an envelope, which we must then open right in front of him. I’ve been told to never say thank you and to act disappointed no matter what (incidentally by my now boss). Last year used that tactic to great effect, garnering a raise an a bigger bonus.

This year I just want out of banking and don’t have time for any games – so I just smiled and said thank you.
