It's really tough to find how much companies give for holiday bonuses, but we did uncover some numbers from a few Louisiana companies who are very generous.

How to win money

Ochsner Health Systems is one of the most giving companies in Louisiana at Christmas time.  Average bonuses at the health company range from $1,000 to $15,000 dollars.

One of the other big companies in Louisiana, CenturyLink decided to drop Christmas bonuses last year. It doesn't look like the bonuses will be back this year.

Entergy, an energy company across South Louisiana reportedly gives out bonuses ranging from $4,000 to close to $10,000 dollars. I reached out to Swepco to find out if workers in our area would be getting bonuses and it doesn't look like big checks are going out.

LHC Group (a home health care company) gives out bonuses from $3,000 to $15,000.

Another Health Company Amedisys is also quite generous, giving out bonuses ranging from $1,500 to $16,000.

I also tried to find out the bonuses for some of the colleges in the state and that information is not readily available.
