Well, that was better than a kick in the teeth

Just had a salary review and bonus meeting with my boss and it was better than I expected.  Prior to the meeting I had a figure in my mind as to what i'd be 'happy' with and the bonus was bigger.  And that's pretty good as I wasn't actually expecting much at all, especially as our CEO described our bonus pool as a bonus puddle due to the fact we made a loss last year.

Again my salary hasn't gone up much which is disappointing due to inflation but i've got an internal interview over the next couple of weeks for a new manager level role.  I'm certainly not favourite to get it but it should open up a few opportunities for me to progress afterwards.  If not there are always other places to work.
