Hello again all
As I said in my last post, I communicated with my "manager" why I did not
receive a bonus... She responded that she would talk to me about it
"tomorrow," and that she apologized she couldn't speak to me about it that
day. The next day, I got an email saying she would talk to me about it
Monday. On Monday, I got an email saying she's delaying our meeting so we
can concentrate on closing for the year end, since that's our #1 priority,
and she would talk to me about it in January.
Since then there's been no discussion, meeting, explanation, or anything. I
didn't even request a "meeting," only an answer.
To AngrieWoman... who says I'm doing clerical work and what bonuses others
in my department get (thousands of dollars) compared to what I get (nothing)
is none of my business... fuck you. I'm a staff accountant and "reconcile"
accounts, like the operating account, that have never been reconciled
properly. When I started, the cash account was not even reconciled for
MONTHS. My manager had/has no clue how to reconcile the operating account.
They had two bank accounts and the cash department would list deposits that
would appear in the other account. I went through it and reconciled it
Now, there's a problem and the account is off $2,500. I told my manager the
problem is somewhere else, something I can't see (don't have access to), and
I need her to look at this information. It sits there for weeks and she
doesn't look at it at all. Plus, she ignores me for days. For the first 3
days of the week she didn't talk to me, give me any work, or say hello.
Truly bizarre! It's not hard to see why the accounting was so messed up
before I started.
Anyway, IMHO she's a bad manager and a bad accountant. Plus, she can't even
answer my question about the bonus. She's a coward. It's okay that all the
managers get huge raises the 1st of the year, got a huge bonus for
Christmas, but yet I get nothing. Not even an explanation. Don't want to
give me a bonus or raise? Fine. At least have the balls to be honest about
it and not a coward. Some people may accept this, like AngrieWoman, but I
can't. Any reasonable, hard working individual would never accept it. Did I
say I expected any bonus? Nope. But what I do expect is an honest answer no
matter what it is. Is she not satisfied with my work? Then she better talk
to me. Is it company policy? Why wouldn't she pull me aside and talk to me
about it, instead of trying to hide it? She didn't even hide it properly!
She said that she'd compile the payroll for the period since there's "tons
of different things" in that particular pay (bonuses, lol). Okay, fine. But
then she gave me the huge entry to put into the system. Great job at hiding
the bonuses! Person #1 in my department... $4500... Person #2 in my
department... $2500... my account... nothing! It's really pathetic.
Me: "Isn't there a way to import this entry from Excel into Mas 90 so we
don't have to type all of this?"
Me: "Can you set a few minutes aside to let me know why I didn't receive any
kind of bonus? Is it performance related, company policy, or a mistake?"
Her (on Thursday) "I'll talk to you about it on Friday."
Her: (on Friday) "I'll talk to you about it on Monday."
Her: (on Monday) "I'll talk to you about it this month."
