If you feel like you got stiffed on your holiday bonus, you may want to drop off an application off at Hilcorp Energy Company.
The Houston-based energy company gave each of their 1,381 employees a $100,000 bonus this year for hitting their goals. In 2010, the company's executives gave employees the choice of a $50,000 car or a $35,000 check for doubling the size of the company in five years. The top brass' motivational strategy seems to be working.
Hilcorp made Fortune Magazine's "Best Companies to Work For" list three years in a row. It's no surprise why.
My question: What's the next bonus gonna be? A small tropical island?
