I can't read the article either, but I don't miss the yearly review process at all. That is one of the main reasons I went to contract work. You don't like what I'm doing then don't extend my contract. Also the much better pay had a small influence on me as well. The only disadvantage of contract work is having to buy my own insurance, but fortunately Obamacare completely fixed that problem for me.

Companies will try anything that will improve their bottom line and profit. Raises, bonuses, and incentives are just there to keep their quality employees satisfied and not go elsewhere.

When the labor market is glut with qualified applicants, incentives and raises are lowered.

When the labor market is sparse of quality applicants, incentives and raises and what ever bonuses can be used to lure or keep quality or even capable people in place are increased.

Why give regular raises to crappy employees, when it would be just as easy to hire better people?

Moral of the story? Kick ass in your job, and hope the market forces are in your favor.

Thanks for the rent-free space in your head. Would have been nice if you'd cleaned it up a bit before you rented it out, though.

Guys, just do a Google Search on the article title, and you'll get a link to the WSJ that'll get you past the paywall.
