What sort of benefits do you currently enjoy? What benefits are most attractive to you? What sort of benefits can smaller, less wealthy companies realistically offer their top developers?

The good

  • 4 weeks vacation (Very, very enticing for me)
  • Flexible hours
  • 40 hours weeks
  • Excellent supporting services (phone/data/furniture/etc)
  • Good salary

The Bad

  • Absurd bureaucratic rules. (4 asset numbers for each computer!)
  • Managers incentives are to burn out employees and over promise on projects. No manager accountability
  • Culture of impossible to meet schedules imposed from outside.
  • Too many cooks on each project
  • Very poor career advancement
  • Very poor correlation between performance and reward

    Nothing is too wonderful to be true
