What I Want in My Next Job

Flexibility - to attend school functions and doctor appts as needed

Limited/no weekend work

4 weeks of vacation per year

Ability to max out my retirement savings along with company match

Health benefits for me and my family

Management responsibilties for a team

Good relationship with boss

Be home in time for dinner 4 out of 5 nights

Limited travel - a night every few weeks is okay

Potential for every other Friday off or half day Fridays in exchange for working 9 hour days

Less than 30 minute commute

Training opportunities

Opportunities to attend conferences

Mentors within the company

If not public job, than at least a 15% (?) raise to make up for reduced job security

A Contract, maybe, with severance if laid off for non-performance issues before 2 years time
