It’s that time of the year when many corporate workers here get ‘the letter’. This is not to be confused with ‘the pink letter’, which is an entirely different thing. It is the time one is rewarded or punished for one’s endeavours, or lack thereof, over the previous year. Where they still exist, the bonuses to be handed out are stated in this document, as are any wage rises or falls.
These are the days filled with thoughts of career prospects, corporate ladders and glass ceilings.
