Evaluating the entire offer

Do you look at more than just the base salary when comparing offers?

Or do a good comparison when evaluating your current total package to a new one?

Most components of an offer can have a financial aspect to it, that you might not be thinking about.

A few come to mind:

Your out of pocket premium healthcare costs (are you going to be paying more reducing your net income)

401K match contribution or vesting period (the amount of match or when it’s vested could be additional returns being missed in the stock market)

PTO and paid holidays (each day can have a monetary value tied to it, especially in year end carry overs or how it’s paid out)

Equipment reimbursement (cell phone, laptop, internet, etc.) again whatever you’re paying out of pocket reduces your disposable net income

There’s probably others…
