What kinds of perks does your company give? Chances are they’re pretty standard. You probably get one or two weeks of paid vacation. Matching 401(k) up to a 3% contribution. Health/Dental/Vision insurance that costs too much. They give you few paid holidays throughout the year. You know, the standard.
