Who even said unemployed? Someone could be looking a potential better place to work in their field. Has nothing to do with unemployment.

Hypothetical person is currently employed at Apple and has been for 5 years writing programs. He hates the facility, coworkers, and his boss, yet enjoys the line of work. He applies at Google and Microsoft, which both offer him $92,875 a year to start.

Google gives him 2 weeks paid time off, fully paid health insurance with no co-pays or out of pocket costs, dental, the option to work from home 2 days a week, and a company Lexus.

Microsoft gives him 1 week paid time off, health insurance but he pays 10% of the premium and has a $1000 yearly out of pocket deductible, no option to work from home ever, and a free bus pass.

Which would you choose if you had this option?
