You’ve just landed an awesome job after months of job hunting. And now you’re going through your mental checklist to make sure it has everything you want. Sufficient salary? Check. Nice people? Yes. Manageable role? Absolutely. It looks like you’re ready to take the gig!

Not so fast. Before you sign on the dotted line, you might want to double-check to make sure this company offers any other benefits you may need now or in the future. (Also, don’t forget to check out the perks.) After all, you don’t want to take the job and then realize you traded any semblance of a work-life balance for a salary bump.
