If they offer a bonus instead of a raise, your salary history will be
flattened. And, that bonus will be the same amount of money year in, year
out. In the long run, you will make much less money.

Companies that pay bonuses, tend not to retain earnings, so if you have
stock options, those options will not appreciate.
