Seventy percent of managers said they expect a bonus this year; 57% of networking and data center staff members reported the same, according to our 2012 Network Computing Salary Survey. In large part, all respondents expected the bonuses and direct cash payments to be based on personal performance (59% of 403 staff members receiving bonuses; 64% of 335 managers).

The company plays a big factor in bonuses, apparently: 43% of staff members said their organizations' performance will lead to bonuses; 19% cited company profit-sharing plans; 16% said their divisions' performance would have an impact.

Interestingly, bonus opportunities ranked third-from-last on the list of what matters most to staffers; 14% cited it among seven responses allowed per individual. That number holds steady with 2011's results.
