TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
If we're talking $3 grand less, I might choose your company over one that seemed a little stiffer, but I think it's absurd to imagine that marketably talented professionals would be lured in by the promise of "free coffee, tea, and cocoa."
It's likely I've been fortunate so far, but I don't think I'd HAVE to consider taking a position that didn't include most of your *atmospheric benefits* (funnay phrase!). It really depends on individual needs, and hugely on how MUCH less your company pays than most, but it sounds like the atmosphere over there also includes heavy clouds of *condescendtion* blowing around, and that's the worst.
Good luck with bringing your superiors up to speed.
ps: It should also be noted that I am a single person with no dependents; other folks may have different considerations.
