This survey should have removed Salary as an option b/c that is the most common answer. It would have been more insightful to ask the question "Beyond Salary, what is the most valuable component when looking for a new job?"

Indeed. I prefer to view salary as almost a negative motivator. No matter how much one is paid, you always want more.

Hmm Salary isn't leading as much as you may think it is. 
I would give up some salary for __________ .

“Culture, more than products or services, is what differentiates an organization from competitors, both in the minds of customers and of employees.”

Wonder why it’s scoring the lowest here! I definitely focus on this dimension that can make or break a team or company even.

I agree and also find it interesting that culture is scoring so low.  Culture is the foundation for many of the other items on the list.

I really think that culture encompasses all the others. If an organization has an employee-centric culture, seeing employees as assets rather than resources, then compensation, work-life balance and flexibility become given.

I agree to a point, I do have experience though of an organization where the culture could be described as 'toxic', however, the C&B and work-life balance was fine. It was still a very difficult place to work.

#1 is the work.   If the work isn't interesting and fun, I'm out.   Fun for me thought is different from most people.   I need to fix things, build things, grow things.   Running operations, status quo, not for me no matter what else is offered.

One thing I do is include them in the meetings about the changes that will take place and get their opinion.  I also lay out the pros and cons of the changes and how it will effect us as a team moving forward.
