Money for me. If they give me the money, the position is a done thing in most cases.

The choices are rather simplistic. If you are familiar with Maslow's principles, you wouldn't be posting this thread at all.

I choose Self Actualization.

Needs for Self-Actualization
When all of the foregoing needs are satisfied, then and only then are the needs for self-actualization activated. Maslow describes self-actualization as a person's need to be and do that which the person was "born to do." "A musician must make music, an artist must paint, and a poet must write." These needs make themselves felt in signs of restlessness. The person feels on edge, tense, lacking something, in short, restless. If a person is hungry, unsafe, not loved or accepted, or lacking self-esteem, it is very easy to know what the person is restless about. It is not always clear what a person wants when there is a need for self-actualization.
Those who have followed the career or salary survey threads on Shifting Gears, might remember that I usually play a different tune. I downplay the significance of money. Follow the same policy in my company too.

Finally I came across a nifty video in FB that explains how it works. Thanks for HVK for sharing it there.

Yes, Samurai, the presentation hints at a "glass ceiling" for remuneration and incentives and also says that passion can help achieve outstanding results - without even remuneration!

What I liked about it most is - apart from the content - the fluid easy style of presenting the content through animation. Important lessons on how to make presentations with slides that seamlessly belnd into each other!

If I do well and its not appreciated by management, its very likely that I will get nothing.
On the other side, If I get a raise, it means I must have done something good which my managament has appreciated.

So money for me please.

with the current job hop scenario, ill take the money.

however, this may change in the future.
Like i read in someone's signature here, regarding money not being important, and just making sure you have enough of it before saying that?
Apt!

I always wanted to...

I want no money, I want no fame. I want a life.
