Fact vs. Fiction Archive

Fiction: When evaluating a job offer, salary is what matters mostónothing else really affects whether I come out ahead financially.

Fact: To decide if a job switch makes good financial sense, you need to evaluate the full compensation package. This includes salary, paid time off, medical/dental insurance, retirement and investments, and annual bonus. You'll also want to inquire about other benefits the company may offer, such as subsidized child care, allowances for dependent care, tuition reimbursement, and fitness subsidies.
