Salary, Benefits & Job Offer Questions

If I change from the construction executive position I have to one at another construction employer, how can I be sure of an equal or superior construction executive compensation package?

Add Answer

When negotiating construction executive benefits, or when negotiating anything at all, you have to know where your base is. Many construction executives don't actually know what their compensation package is worth, so when they change companies they can lose value. Learn your worth by doing your homework. Get out your agreement from your current position and start adding up the value. Remember to include the value of stock options you will lose because of the move. You'll want to pick up that value or more in the new position. Remember to consider the comparative cost of living if you are negotiating. Remember to consider the time frame in which your next construction salary increase would take place. All these things and many more go into making up the total value of your construction executive compensation package.
