Hi,

I want to discuss this topic in general.

How will you divide 100 between following factors which derive: job satisfaction/motivation/retention/next step in career(change).
Salary,Company Culture,Your Role,Technologies, Chance of Growth, Brand Name of Company.

I am thinking on following.

Salary - 50%
Culture - 25%
Role - 15%
Technologies,Growth,Brand Name combine - 10%

p.s. I am not seeking opinions from HR consultants.

Salary-87%
Culture-9%
Role-2%
Growth- 0%
technologies- 2%
brand 0%


I separated growth, technology, and brand because those are separate things.

It's not that simple. Between a very low salary (that isn't enough to live on comfortably) and a medium salary, there is a world of difference. Between that medium salary and a higher salary becomes when other factors are more important.

I agree we can not control it, but we can choose it.

Salary will lot depend on culture of company. If culture is not good, obviously they will try to hire as low as possible. I have seen few HR using cheap tricks to reduce salary expectations of a candidate.

Do you remember that video about job satisfaction which appeared about a month ago, and we mods saw, Jeanne? That might help: I had to search long and hard for it, but it should be on this thread.

Jeanne,

What is there to elaborate? Supply and demand. If the supply is abundant, the demand is much less. If your salary is more than you need to do everything you want, other things become much much more important than salary.

Work life balance comes in culture. Job security, no company can assure if they are not secured themselves.

If you are worried about that then you should not go in those companies.
