Compensation

薪资

In many jobs, you’ll receive a base salary as well as additional incentive compensation—that is, extra pay based on performance. If you will receive any form of incentive compensation—be it commission or bonus—ask how that pay is determined. Is it based on a formula or objective criteria? What will it typically be as a percentage of your base salary, and what are the past high, low, and median levels for someone at your level? The more you know about incentive compensation, the easier it will be to structure your performance to maximize it.

很多工作提供的待遇都是底薪加奖金,其中奖金是根据绩效而给予的额外报酬。如果你的待遇包括任何一种形式的奖金——提成或分红——请你问问这个奖金是怎么算的。是用固定公式还是按一定的任务标准计算的?通常是你底薪的百分之多少?过去你同一级别的某人能拿到的高、中、低水平的奖金又是多少?你对奖金了解得越多,就越容易调整你的绩效使你拿到的奖金最大化。

Although each of these amounts is often highly negotiated by senior hires, junior employees usually don’t have much leverage. That said, if your potential employer offers you less than you had anticipated and it won’t move off that number, ask if you can receive a salary review prior to the standard review period. Large companies often can’t diverge from specified salary levels, but might see an earlier review as a way to reward you without breaking rules.

通常只有资深雇员才能商讨薪资数额,初级雇员不太有什么影响力。尽管如此,如果你的潜在雇主提供的待遇低于你的预期且不会改变,你可以问问你能不能在规定的调薪期前得到一次调薪机会。大公司的薪酬通常都不能偏离某个指定水平,但或许会把提前调薪当成既不破坏规则又能给你奖励的一种方式。

 

Moving Expenses

搬家费

When I graduated from business school, I worried how I would transport my car to my new job, since I planned to fly rather than drive all the way from BostontoWashington. Then I read the small print in my HR packet. The company would transport my car for me at its expense! I’m not going to lie, I felt a little guilty watching my rusty 15-year-old compact being lifted onto the vehicle carrier—but it definitely saved me hassle and time.

当我从商科学校毕业时,我担心怎么才能把我的汽车带去我的新工作所在地,因为我计划从波士顿坐飞机去华盛顿而不是一路开车去。然后我看到了HR发给我的信息汇总里的一项小内容。公司会帮我把车托运并支付费用!老实说,在我看到我那用了15年的破车被拖到运输公司时我有点内疚——但这的确为我省去了麻烦,节约了时间。

Even if you’re moving from a dorm room to an apartment via your parents’ minivan, you do have moving expenses, and it’s worth asking whether gasoline and mileage is covered. Also ask about reimbursement for apartment-seeking expenses—even day trips to anew cityresult in subway, train, cab, meals, and tipping costs.

即使你是用父母的小货车从宿舍搬到一个公寓,也可以享受搬家费,要问的是油费和运费是否包含在内。还要问问是否报销找公寓的费用——甚至是到一个新城市的短程途中产生的地铁、火车、出租车、用餐及其他小额费用。

 

If you’re more established, you may also need to think about selling your home and buying a new one. Some companies will agree to compensate new hires for a loss on their home, or pick up the financing fees or closing costs on a new home.

如果你更确定,还可以考虑卖掉现有的房子再买个新的。有的公司会愿意补偿新员工的住房差价,或是承担购置新家的财务费用或手续费。

All this said, make sure to ask about any contingencies tied to moving reimbursement. When I moved on to a new job 11 months later, I received a formal letter from my previous employer informing me I had to pay the company back for prior moving expenses, since I left before a year’s time. Fortunately, my former manager was able to intervene—but make sure you figure out beforehand if there’s a “clawback” of moving expenses.

还要确定任何不可预见的事是否和报销搬家费相关联。当我11个月后搬到新的工作所在地时,我收到前公司的正式通知,让我把之前的搬家费还给公司,因为我没呆够一年就离职。幸运的是,我之前的经理出面干预此事——但你最好事先就想到了是否有“追回”搬家费这回事儿。
