What’s this job really worth?
How to calculate the total package.
Salary isn’t everything
“When considering the total package, money should be thought of in terms of whether or not it is fair and adequately meets the individual's needs — but after that, non-financial factors are what will really make or break how pleasant the job is,” says Daniel Crosby, president of IncBlot Behavioral Finance.
Crosby says that all too often people will work so hard to make a few thousand dollars more and end up sacrificing their quality of life. “Unless you really need the money to provide for you and yours, the non-financial factors are the ones to really pay attention to once you have the basics covered.”
