It's kind of hard to say, since you don't specify how *much* lower your
salaries are, but I think the only one of those that would sway me is the
40-hour week bit -- I'm more attached to having a life than I am to money.
The rest of it is pretty standard and/or unimportant to me.

If your boss actually considers casual dress a perk in this industry, I have
to assume that s/he has spent the past ten years under a rock. Heck, some
*law firms* have moved to business casual in recent years - can t-shirts be
far behind for them? :-)

Subject: FWD: a question about "atmospheric" benefits

This is a list of our "atmospheric" fringes: can you all let me know
whether you think any of these (and which ones) make up for lower pay?

free lunch every other week
free coffee, tea, and cocoa
flexible work hours
occasional telecommuting acceptable (once a week is the standard)
casual dress
a standard 40-hour week

I would appreciate any responses as soon as possible--I'm mailing out the
salary document and scheduling the meeting today.

Many thanks.
