It really depend on which department you work in. For some is work life balance. For some is work till super late. Whats more, the benefits is just avreage and there is really not much to talk about. Just work. If i compare my current salary to my previous company, when i count it to dollar and cents its just about the same. Seriously!

Satisfied with Salary but unsatisfied with career progression
It was a highly technical job which required long stays in lab. I did get some opportunities to attend international conferences and also enjoyed decent salary. But the career progression options were limited.
