What it means:
The company would have positive foundation of profit versus loss. The company would have a clean balance sheet and a reasonable expectation of continued financial growth. The salary or income would allow me to pay monthly bills, save for unforeseen expenses and save for a yearly trip abroad.
Why this is important to me:
Working for a company with a proven track record of financial stability would create a sense of security. It would allow me to grow personally by visiting new countries and experiencing their culture. My bills would paid monthly allowing for so discretionary purchses as well as monthly savings.
My career choice ideally would pay a minimum of $$$ per year.
How would I feel if this were missing?
I would be left unfulfilled if I was not able to take at least one vacation of 7-10 abroad a year.
