I hate being pushy. I hate putting people "on the spot". But I just did. My boss emailed me that she needed me to enter a check to be cut - $2000 for an employee who is having his 20th year anniversary with the company (and the actual date isn't even until next week). I had to email her back that the check was entered and ready for printing (I'm working from home today) so.........I added this:
speaking of anniversaries, did the company decide if they are still doing anything for 10 year anniversaries? :)
Mine was almost 6 months ago! We aren't a huge company (just under 50 employees) but everyone before me that had a 10 year anniversary got a trip to Hawaii for 2! It probably cost the company $3500. I know it was around $2000 for the condo rental (rented from our previous company owner), plus airfare and car rental. Then a couple people had 15 year anniversaries and got an extra week of vacation. So a few years go by, with no big anniversaries and my 10 year comes and goes without a peep. Kinda ticked me off. But I don't like to make waves or be pushy, so I just didn't say anything.
But, I couldn't not say anything this time. Or should I have just kept my mouth shut and waited it out - there are one or two others who are coming up on 10 years this year and see if anything was done for them? Too late now. I did it. No reply back yet.
