in reply to (OT) Employee Retention - Why do you stay, why do you go?

Benefits++

I work for a company that offers an incredible benefits package at a very competitive rate. This and high moral is what has kept me with my employer for the last 4 years 4 months, and 14 days (who's counting?). There are many other factors to it, but those are the two that stick out most (I should not have to mention salary).

Seriously though. I feel that if a company is going to invest that much into making sure I'm healthy and happy, then I should make sure they know that it is worthwhile investment. Hence the tenure.

    I care not that my employer provides health insurance or any of that crap. It's my experience that the national health service provides good service and i don't need private insurance. I'd far rather that instead of giving money to insurers and insurance suits, they gave the money to me as part of my salary.

    What keeps me at a particular employer is a combination of interesting work, clueful management, and good salary. The last two jobs I left I left because of malicious mismanagement in one case, and a combination of overbearing management and low salary in the other.

      Do you live outside the US? Because there really isn't a national health service here. Your options are either a good benifits package, bleed money to pay for a private policy, or pray that you don't get sick (I'm taking that last option ATM :(
