A company doesn’t find its way on Fortune‘s 100 Best Companies to Work For list by skimping around bonus time.
That goes double for Houston-based Hilcorp, which landed at No. 20 on this year’s list on the strength of its generous bonus policy. The company told us earlier this year that if employees meet certain goals, that every one of them would receive a generous $100,000 bonus.
