This is def as important as salary.

It depends on your preferences. For me, salary probably comes second to work environment. It’s important I work with down to earth folks I can feel comfortable being myself with and going to them to seek guidance when I need it. Some people care about WLB, that’s not as important for me though. If I like my colleagues and am making good money (situation im in now), I don’t care how hard they work me especially since a lot of the work can be done remotely.

Hours worked/WLB

I went to law school and decided to go into consulting instead of biglaw. My biglaw classmates make $250k+ right now, while I’m “only” making $150k. But, I work 100% remote, am available for “work” 9-5, and probably only really work 2-4 hours a day. I wouldn’t be surprised if I was making more than my classmates on an actual hour worked rate.

Salary is my priority because I live in NYC and need the money 😅

Health insurance for US people. A lot of people don’t do a granular look at how switching insurances
and potential increases in cost can eat into new salary gains. Especially if you’re carrying a family of 3-5 on your employer’s health plan.

Quality of life and coworkers I like are big ones for me.

If the job makes you feel content, you have it good :)

Just wondering all, during salary negotiations if you give them a 15k range and they offer the complete minimum is that disrespectful and how much is a reasonable amount to rebut by. I'd def be okay with the minimum but I always hear they expect negotiations. Also how often do they even offer their best $$

95K - 110K range for example and they offered 95K

America was founded in most part because groups of people were being persecuted for their religion (because they were TOO puritanical). They then stole land and used slavery to burn through a new continent and carve out a country for themselves. We should not be surprised by these constant disappointments from our nation, it’s built in and by design. My “unpopular” opinion: the settlers and forefathers should have been persecuted harder.
