There are three aspects of project satisfaction:
1. The work you do.
2. The people you work with.
3. The location

Pick two.

Damned if you do and damned if you don't choices. Working with fun people is great, but what good is it if the work sucks. Location is least important, it's not like u get a chance to know the cities


2, 2 and 2 in that order


1,2 I'll go anywhere if the team is fun and we are doing something interesting. even a great city with a crap budget, crazy hours, and terrible people would blow


3, 2...in that order

2, 3

2 and only 2

2, 3


Or... Pick zero.

I was offered FTE where I work as a contractor, currently making 124k. I want to stay but the recruiter low balled me. He said they don’t have offices in my state, so they used the national average of 85-105k. I've researched and know that the average salary for my position is $140k. I told him this. They then came back 2 days later with “great news” - the new offer was 115k. I again countered with 140k since the bar was set so low. Thoughts? If they come back with 120-130k, do I counter again?
