Employees surprised with $10 million in bonuses at holiday party

Employees at a Maryland real estate company got the surprise of their lives while attending their company holiday party over the weekend. They were all handed red envelopes containing unexpected bonuses averaging $50,000. St. John Properties wanted to thank their nearly 200 employees for helping them reach their goal of developing 20 million square feet in real estate, so the company shelled out a total of about $10 million in bonuses.

Lawrence Maykrantz, the company’s president, told CNN, “It was truly one of the most amazing things I’ve ever witnessed in my life. Everyone was all overwhelmed with emotions. They were screaming, crying, laughing, hugging.”
