Agreed. I think a good work/life balance with upward mobility is the optimum opportunity.

@Tech4People, i'm married to an innovator (he's a big data engineer) and i'm glad to see that now he's management, he doesn't try to undercut people's salary even though the technology is very cool. Here the valley, people will often do cool stuff for less money if they also get stock options. Everyone understands that its a big gamble but there's a big potential upside. THe innovators are often willing to take the chance.

tirlapur,

That's a fair way of putting it.

(As I have been harping constantly here)Simply paying the Highest Salaries in the Industry is not going to cut it for most folks going ahead.

Its not enough.

pocharle,

 

Effectively both of us are saying basically the same thing(in Different ways).

LOL!

Simply saying I will pay my Employees the Highest Salaries on the market is not going to keep them with you(if the work atmosphere is atrocious);On the other hand a company which pays the Lowest Salaries on the market will also struggle to hold onto Existing,Valuable Staff.

I'm not saying slary is the only motivation, but it is important. There are lots of factors involved in keeping talent. Like advancement potential, environment, & motivation factors, among many others.

Opportunities for advancement and company culture attracted me to the current employer. Salary was not an issue becauase the pay was on par with the industry.

pocharle,

Flexibility is a virtue which can't and should'nt be taken for granted in today's world.

Simply paying The Highest Salaries alone is not the way to retain staff.You need to manage them well.

Hailey,

That's a fair statement to make.

Today the situation is such that if Employees don't jump ship every few years they are considered,Unambitious and unlikely to reach the Top.

Often such employees routinely get slotted in the Bottom Achievers bracket(at Large Companies) for no fault of theirs.

Sounds really crazy when Employees really are your best asset today but that's just the way it is currently.

Hailey,

I am saying from personal Experience here but it matters immensely to me to get the oppurtunity to work with Cutting-edge stuff.

Even if I get paid say 10% less in the Bargain I don't care.

But then,Engineers like the rest of all people fall in two distinct brackets-The Innovators and the Followers.

The Followers would rather have a higher salary instead.

I think it does matter. Maybe if you've only been with a few companies, then it's not that relevant. But if you've jumped ship from multiple companies in a short period of time, I think it warrants some explanation.
