Well, I can't be sure if it was my second certification (SCWCD, last Dec 26) but a few weeks ago I got an unexpected bonus of 9.3% of annual pay and the range for everyone was from 0% to 10% of the annual salary. There were people that didn't get anything and I suppose there were some who got 10%. The IT dept. did very well last year while some other depts. didn't get a bonus.

My annual salary is 0.00. With my certification I get a bonus of 100 %. Now I am glad to tell you that my annual salary is ... Damn, I thought that the java cert. would brought me a job! Big mistake, but at least, I learned something that I love. Hope the market will get better soon!
