Benefits offerti
Ho trovato una lista che mi sembra interessante di componenti della vostra compensazione totale.

Total Compensation

This includes base salary, medical, dental, vision and retirement benefits. Quello che dovete guardare in America e' che anche la parte medica cambia da societa' a societa'. Non sono obbligati a pagare niente delle vostre spese mediche, e quindi bisogna capire bene quanti soldi bisognera' tirare fuori ogni mese per le spese mediche, e che livello di assicurazione offrono.

Retirement benefits: qui c'e' un sistema VOLONTARIO che si chiama 401k. Praticamente ogni mese potete mettere via in un conto speciale una parte del vostro stipendio. Un po' come il TFR italiano, solo che la % che il datore versa e' anche volontaria. Questo e' un buon articolo per capire di piu' http://www.thriftyfun.com/tf000858.tip.html

Fatelo comunque, perche' i vantaggi fiscali sono forti e poi perche' e' una buona disciplina per risparmiare.

Quality-of-Life Factors

What are the company's policies regarding vacation, child/eldercare, parental leave, telecommuting policies and relocation requirements?

Performance Parameters

Do the performance expectations, time period given to achieve those goals and annual bonuses seem right for you?

Job Structure

How much domestic and international travel is required?

Resources and Support

What technical and interdepartmental support will you get from IT, marketing, accounting and customer service?

Career Development

This includes tuition assistance, professional development, mentoring and coaching.

Stress and Time

Exactly what are you getting yourself into, and are you being compensated for it? Take note of peak work hours, parental leave policies, telecommuting policies and frequency of required relocation.

Help with Transition

The relocation package, signing bonus, and assistance with job search and relocation for your partner/spouse can be a nice add-on and might even tip you off as to how much the company wants you to join the team.
