Can’t ignore health benefits. Less you have to pay based in good coverage saves you money today and in the future

Other things matter - how much are you traveling? How long is your daily commute? How many hours a week are you putting in? I hate the company I’m currently at, but I have 10 minute drive to work, don’t typically work more than 40 hours a week, and the long term stock options are keeping me here.

Also consider your PTO like how many vacation days and sick leave you get. What about training budget to help pay for classes, certs, etc to grow yourself. Also consider does the company offer an “expense account” meaning do you get reimbursed for commuting to multiple client sites within the same day (parking, miles, tolls, etc).

Nope - industry; West Coast. Unlimited PTO is also nice

Hi all! Do you ever discuss bonuses and annual raises during your end of year review in a large lockstep firm?

Hi! I just received a job offer that includes a sign on bonus to cover the cost of a certification that I’m getting (study program and exam fees).

It’s not a bonus or anything. I want to make sure I have a general idea before I ask HR about it.
