Mainly because I thought I just wasn't a good enough developer. I could program, sure, but a lot of other people on the team could do it just as well and a lot faster.
Anyway, enough about me! You both mention money as an important factor. I agree. And while our company doesn't go crazy with money, the salaries they offer are certainly nothing to be ashamed of. But you don't talk about money until you have actually met and sat down together and that is a problem. When I find someone who seems suitable on Monster, they don't even respond to my email. Evidently, I am not hitting the right note.
When you read personel ads (or job offers made through email or some other medium), what makes you tick? Everyone is different, of course, but what about you?
