According to a new survey, 66% of us would leave our job if we didn't feel appreciated. That's up 15% from five years ago. More money is the number one way we WANT to be rewarded. More vacation days was a close second.

Here are the ten WORST things people said they've gotten instead of a raise.  

  1. An expired gift certificate.
  2. A large carving of a polar bear.
  3. A foam tombstone.  (???)
  4. A golden key to an executive bathroom that didn't exist.
  5. Socks.
  6. A small, custom-made statue that looked like the employee.
  7. A plaque that had a spelling error on it.
  8.  Fresh meat from a hunting trip.
  9.  A jacket that wasn't even close to the right size.
  10.  Coupons for the grocery store.
