    Being in a temporary contract you are not entitled to these. However if you are kept on, then the benefits are great.

    5% annual bonus. This is a 5% bonus for everyone within the company received in February. However, it has decreased from 25% over the past 5 years and is due to stop.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Assistant Section Manager in Winchester, England

    You get an annual bonus but it is more of a profit share as everyone is a partner in the business. Can be very nice, 20% of salary but in recent years has been far closer to 4% of salary.
