When I am thinking to myself? Base.

When I am thinking in the context of looking at a new job or securing credit? Total cash comp.

Same

Salary = base
Total cash comp = base + bonus
Total rewards = base + bonus + benefits

I've been working at a small marketing agency for 3 years now. I started when I was an intern and they ended up hiring me full time.

My intern included graphic design and web development but I didn't really get too far into the developer role. My starting salary was 32k/yr and three years, two title changes and raises later I'm only at 42k/year.
