Great question! Your compensation is made up of much more than just a base salary or wage, and it's important to look at the whole picture when assessing a potential company or role. Benefits play a large part in a total compensation package. One role may seemingly offer more with a higher base salary, but when you look at total compensation, another role may actually be the better option. Typically, at larger organizations, benefits programs can not be negotiated, so it's okay to inquire about them during the later stages of the interview process.
