Not feelin’ the EMC lovin’

Looks like the bonus information I was given before was incorrect. The amount was correct but instead of being a “thanks for doing such a good job” bonus, it’s a “here’s the maximum amount of bonus you could get paid over the next 4 quarters if you meet your quarterly goals” carrot. In that light, the amount is much less “lovin'” and more of a joke. Apparently this is the new EMC way, which is disappointing.

Far from being an incentive, this carrot is more closely aligned with its vegetable namesake.

While I’ll continue to do my job to the best of my ability – I’ll be doing it because I enjoy it, not because of the orange tuber dangling in front of me.
