The Golden Handcuffs

It’s a thing. It’s when a company offers pay and benefits that’s so far out of the realm that it seems too good to be true.

It’s a talent attraction and retention strategy. What will happen once you accept?

Well you can’t leave because most other companies aren’t going to pay you that much. Or you go work for a big name company slaving 60-80 hours a week.

You can stay there forever. But ask yourself before you accept the position, are you ready to stay there forever?
