The person who didn't take into account benefits is most often the employee/HR of the hiring company.
this thread blew up
now, I'm the one replying to an "older post".
good to know either things have changed in general, or that there are some folks like you guys that look at the total compensation package.
I'm sorta stuck again. Know anyone looking for a data analyst, GIS/Spatial locations analyst, with a concentration in property values, tax compliance that has a total compensation package in the 6 figures range, with a generous vacation package, home office, and company car?
- actually it wouldn't take all that for me to leave, but one has to dream ;)
I just saw that Ryan Co, just signed a binding agreement to purchase Thomson-Reuter's Tax group... the pool of employers in that arena just shrank again.
