Interesting: Say, Den is earning $100/month in January It's Jan15 and he just know that got an offer which is $150/month. However, if he chooses to leave now, he need to pay his old company back 1 month salary i.e. $100, and the compensation is pro rate. i.e. if he leave on Jan16, he need to pay 100*29/30 back. if he leave on Feb14 and start working in Feb15 in the new company, he doesn't need to pay the old company back. So how to maximize his profit?

Company A: current company (salary 100) Company B: company with salary 150 If he is going to get his salary from 16 Jan to 14 Feb, in addition of not being forced to pay compensation, he should leave on Feb 14. Otherwise, he should leave immediately.
hahahahaa... Let me give it a shot to reword it. Dan gets one paycheck a month, on the 15th. But the paycheck is for last 30 days. But for the next 30 days. So when he gets a paycheck on the 15th, that paycheck is for next 30 days, if he leaves, he has to pay it back. However, if he leaves on the 14th, which means he won't get a paycheck for the next 30 days, he doesn't pay anything back. Is that correct?
