This is an intersting phenomenon to me. Given that the dollar amount is the same (or even slightly less), the merit increase is always a better option. Why? Because the salary increase is like an annuity -- you get it every year, plus dividends. Why settle for a one-time bonus, unless you are planning a hasty retreat from the company. I guess "bonus" just sounds better than 1% or 2% increase.


I work for Guy Kawasaki. Thanks for your comment about Guy and the link to his recent Science Daily blog posting!
