Johnson says he is 'looking at' scrapping BBC licence fee

St. John made the announcement December 7 during the company's annual holiday party. The company also offers an on-site fitness facility, company-owned vehicles for eligible employees, physical therapy and wellness consultations as well as access to a financial advisor. Only five employees at the company knew about the bonus in advance of the surprise announcement.
The $10 million bonus was handed out based completely on years of service.
"I still haven't absorbed it", Nikki Goode, director of taxation, said in the company video.
The bonus is on top of other bonuses staff may be eligible. "It is life-changing", said one employee before taking an emotional pause. Sure, the St. John bonus is one zero less, but it's fair to say it still beats that Starbucks gift card.
