You have received a job offer, now what.
How do you evaluate the offer? Did the offer letter or email include everything you need to know to consider the offer...have you thought of all the items that you need to consider about the offer to make a good decision.
The link below will open an excel spreadsheet that was put together by David S. (around 2008) when he was trying to make a decision to join a small company (about 35 employees). David had always worked for much larger companies. David did take and offer and was glad he did. The smaller company did not offer all the perks some of the larger companies that he had worked for in the past, but he was able to be more involved and do different things at the smaller company.

Be sure to read the comments in the any of the excel cells that have a red triangle in the upper right corner.
Also the Excel file will have two tabs, both have the same information, just in case you mess one of the sheets up, the other will still be available, or just download the file again.
