    Where I work, we also get a 3% annual raise with our evaluation. But what I don't like is that we are NOT to discuss our wages with other nurses. When a few of us did (shame on us!!), we found out that our wages didn't go along any set format. Nurses with less experience were hired on for the same wages the ones with more experience that had worked here longer were making. But we're not allowed to know that. I did go to my boss and state that I know my hourly wage was not what it should be, and I would walk if it were not increased. I got my raise! Sure makes you feel loyal to the company!

    My hospital does this stupid thing based on Press-Gainey scores called a piece of the pie. If we meet all of our Press-Gainey goals, then we get a cut of the profits, usually works out to one weeks worth of pay. They use this as a delaying tactic too, we don't meet the standards, they give us like 6 months to right it and then we get the piece of the pie. Now they are telling us, OK you get the piece of the pie, but not till November. This makes no sense as the fiscal year for the hospital starts this month. Work ourselves to death to get less than 2% after taxes. We used to get merit raises based on performance, the most you could get was 6 percent, we haven't had that in 10 years or more. I'll throw in a quote from Blink-182 "work sucks"!
