    Used to be tied half to the company performance, half to your work performance. Now is tied completely to work performance. Most people used to qualify, then they did make it more difficult, but if you are a high performer, you will receive a bonus every quarter.

    Company performance part of bonus paid in stock, if the stock price holds, this is a very nice extra perk.

    This benefit needs to be restructured in some departments but overall is comparable to other MSB service Companies.

    based on different grade levels--starting from 10% from entry. Part based on individual performance and partly based on company performance.
