I am happy to have landed a new job. My entire team was laid off in October so I just accepted an identical position at a competing company. My new job will start January 30th.
Below is a comparison of my old job and my new job.
|Old job||New job|
|Bonus at 100%||$28,000||$30,000|
|Bonus cap||120% of goal||No cap|
|Vehicle||Company car & gas card||$450 auto allowance* & gas card|
|Vacation per year||2 weeks||2 weeks|
|Sick days per year||4 days||6 days|
|Holidays per year||7 days||9.5 days|
|401(k) match||$1,000/year max||4%|
* I negotiated a $450/month auto allowance & gas card in lieu of the company vehicle that is normally provided. I was going to keep my car even if I was provided a company vehicle so receiving the auto allowance is a plus for me.
