  • One way... to set yourself apart from your competitors is to offer a generous time-off package to new hires.

  • ...a situation wherein the existing employee may feel that they must leave to retain any self-respect. I prefer to work for companies that are not afraid to grow leaders internally and show a strong bias for internal transfers and promotions.
  • One of the things that really gets my goat (substitute other metaphor as appropriate) is when employers treat new hires much better than their existing employees. It's one thing if a new hire is an experienced person coming from another company and negotiates some extraordinary benefits for himself. But when the company institutes an across-the-board hiring incentive program that gives the new folks better computers, better offices, more time off, etc. than what the old folks are getting, that's a real morale killer.

    We're building the house of the future together.
