It depends on the size of the bonus. If the employer doesn't factor in a percentage of shared profits, and is simply offering a token thank you; I guess the party would make more sense.
Money. But then again, I don't have any work right now, so my answer is kinda moot and academic .
I'd take the party over an insignificant bonus amount, perhaps under $30 or something.
In this day and age, I'd say you'd have to be pretty appreciative of any bonus or party....bonuses and parties where the employee doesn't have to pay for them are becoming a thing of the past.
This happened at my old job for the past three years.
They told us we didn't have money for a bonus but threw a huge party and bought us wack jackets and sweatshirts with assorted food.
Everyone in the company agreed that we would have rather took the money.
The office parties I have been to have been pretty ordinary affairs people seem to get into their nice safe little groups. You will see the grovelers surrounding the boss telling him things he wants to hear including praise for himself. Then you'll get groups of men congregate. You'll see the ones that love the Grog and the ones that love football get together in smaller groups. sometimes defined by age group. There is always an air of tension until attention is paid to the person that behaves the most badly.
