Do you know how much you are actually making with all the hard work, company politics and long commute? When evaluating job offers, keeping a cool head and carefully weighing the pros and cons are crucial. Once you make your decision, you are done and mistakes can be costly and painful.
Here is an example: Chris is an engineering manager at a large tech company in the Bay Area making $150,000 per year. He has a wife and two young kids. While his wife had a career as a marketer, she wants to spend time with the kids until the youngest one goes to first grade. Chris’ daily commute is less than 30 minutes each way.
