Feelin’ the Isilon lovin’

I think Isilon likes me. I discovered today, much to my surprise, that I will receive a bonus for the 1.5 months I worked in 2011.

The dollar amount was 86% of my IBM bonus for the 12 months I worked in 2010.

It’s hard to do a direct comparison given the different economic climates, work location, recent acquisition, etc. but I’m still feelin’ loved more here than I was at IBM when I left.

Best of all was a small note from my manager regarding the bonus, reading simply:

Thank you for being so damn good at your job — you absolutely deserve it.
