Also, I've worked for TWO different non-government / non-union companies where they seemed almost proud that your performance review did not affect your pay (neither salary nor bonus... although aggregate company performance affected both).

Which I did not and do not understand at all. Shouldn't they want to reward high performers? From what I can see, all being a high performer nets you is more work and a slightly better chance of being promoted earlier than you would otherwise. Maybe an *extremely* slim chance at a discretionary bonus. Seems pretty backwards. Perhaps that's why they've both had high turnover and openings when I was looking for a job.

That said, I've worked with some pretty bright and high performing people at both jobs. Maybe even more than the ones where the pay was more closely linked to perceived merit.
