    I got a certificate at my last job and told them to make it out to Angelina Jolie. They did.

    I’m coming up on five years at my job myself. We get gift cards and sometimes pretty generous bonuses around the holidays, but I don’t think I’ll be getting anything special for my five year anniversary except the satisfaction of having lasted five years at a job that I was not even remotely qualified for when I was hired. Maybe I’ll make my own certificate. The “Best at Pretending She Knows What She’s Doing” award.

    I work for a best places to work company. I’m not sure how it all works, but I’m pretty happy and they did notice my anniversary. Good post!

    I’m with Lizzi on this one. Sounds soul destroying. No thanks. My husband already works in one of those jobs and there’s no way in hell I’ll go into one. Two miserable people in one household would be a recipe for disaster.

    I have worked at companies that recognize anniversaries, but you know what, it seemed a bit obligatory. 5 years at one job is commendable in today’s work environment. Pat yourself on the back and get back to work!

If you don't comment, then I'm just talking to myself -- and I do too much of that already.
