a 400 dollar amazon gift card.
 
I mean..I'll take it.....heh...at least it wasn't just a plaque...?
 
;)
Not much longer and I can retire....if I last that long!
 
Not many more years of buying new pcs left tho.....probably one or two more updates..then I'm pretty  much 'spent' (pun intended!)

I went into semi-retirement 1 October 2020 and moved to Scotland. In a few years I can start drawing some pensions.

When the pandemic restrictions lift I'll get a National Insurance Number in Scotland and look for some type of online job.

$400 is more than we get for  20yrs.
 
Every 5 we get a pick out of this cheesy gift redemption booklet.   Every 5 years the gifts to pick from go from up about $25 in value  .... so at 20 yrs it's worth maybe a $200 item to pick from.

Hey you're better off than some, I got laid off thanks to the pandemic after 13 years at my place of work, and thanks to new ownership that was taking over as the pandemic was shutting stuff down, they haven't hired back a single person that was laid off early last year - they don't want to pay our higher wages when they can hire "new" people at minimum wage.
I feel like I wasted a third of my life there, to be honest, and I have nothing to show for it, literally.
 
Congrats on being close to retirement & what not though, that's awesome & good for you as well as RJ.

When I left my work to go into semi-retirement I got a cap, a t-shirt, and a coffee mug. Needless to say I wasn't impressed.

If we had employee of the month, I would probably get it most often.

That's a bummer and I'm sure there are many like you out there.  I bet they took the funds from the bills passed for employment.  I know I've heard some stories of that happening.

Had 23 years of full-time employee, plus another 3 as a contractor. Got laid off last....*thinking* June? Meh, I'm glad I'm out of the rat race. Not old enough to retire, but too old to be considered for too much (53) other than IT work.
Oh, what did I get? Unemployment lol. I figure I worked that long for it, so why not ;)  Gimme a job pushing a broom or something else low stress but with health benefits :)

I thought my work might have starting cutting staff, but not yet fortunately, they're just relying on natural attrition (of course we now have fewer people to do an increasing amount of work, but that's another story). Not a single promotion for anyone in my division for over 10 years at my level, no matter how hard we work or how much $ we add to the bottom line. It's pretty demoralizing.

My employer gives people certificates until about 20yrs and then some pottery thereafter. A $400 amazon gc definitely trumps that I think!

I received a fine Sterling silver money clip for my 10 year (no money it it though). Nothing for my 20 or 25 year. My 26 year will be next Tuesday, I’m betting it will just be a blip on the screen in the break room.

A 400$ gift card is pretty solid.  I am looking at a pretty nice pen set at 20 years.

It was intended to be a summer job, lol. It’s definitely not a dream job, but there are parts that I truly enjoy. We do have some pretty decent benefits, my ESOP has double in the last year.
