Pharmacist salaries are still climbing, but at a slower rate.

    Although I might not respond with such vehemence, over the course of your career, you can expect your pay to increase fast, increase slow or not at all. Depending on your practice location you may or may not receive a bonus - again, based on culture, where pharmacy fits within the corporate heirarchy & health of the corporation.

    But...your pay won't fall.:thumbup:

    Now...get me started on clinical & I'll get wound up:smuggrin:

    Bonuses and profit sharing have nothing to do with increased salary. Those are based on store's performance, and have more to do with the economy. Salary is still increasing.

    I agree with Genesis - the company where I'm currently working (not pharmacy related) has completely phased out stock options and bonus checks that used to be 20-30% of your base salary are now between 3 and 7% (assuming the company meets or exceeds all financial targets). I don't think this trend is unique to the field of pharmacy.
