Money, of course, isn't everything. Still, nearly 7 in 10, or 68 percent of people polled in a recent Glassdoor survey, said salary and compensation were among their top considerations before accepting a job offer.
"There's no doubt that pay is among the leading factors most job seekers weigh when determining where to work," Glassdoor's chief economist, Dr. Andrew Chamberlain, said in a statement. "However, our research shows that a big paycheck isn't necessarily tied to long-term satisfaction in your job," he said. "We find that culture and values, career opportunities and trust in senior leadership are the biggest drivers of employee satisfaction."
