Thank you comment icon Besides those you listed things that come to mind are: location (living somewhere you want to be), work relationships, work-life balance, opportunity for advancement, opportunities for learning Kyle Y.
Thank you comment icon Abbas: Hi. Some other rewards to working are (1) contributing to goal achievement of your organization by performing your job well, (2) personal satisfaction and pride in doing your job well and (3) helping your colleagues to achieve their goals by sharing information or by assisting them with completing a task.

Hi Abbas. There are numerous benefits beyond the basics you mention. Here is a few that I think are key: 1) Company paid reimbursement for education, training and professional certifications to enhance your skills and knowledge - many large companies offer this. 2) The actual work experience you will be exposed to will allow you to enhance your resume and grow your skills to make you more marketable. 3) Networking and mentoring programs to allow you to get coaching and exposure that can open doors and help you further develop your skills and professional capabilities. Also open doors within a company to new and promotional opportunities. 4) Volunteering opportunities that many companies support and encourage to help engage with improvement in your communities and allow you to give back - with whatever interests you may have.

Collaborating with other smart and motivated people to achieve something bigger than you. Don't leave this luck. Ask about who you will working with and the how the teams work and play together.

Here are several rewards I can think of aside from the perks you mentioned.



  1. Getting a Kudos/appreciation note from your customers or partners

  2. Feeling a sense of accomplishment when you deliver something (as an individual or as a team player). Motivates you to move on and take more...

  3. Getting ownership to drive areas. Get a sense of responsibility.

  4. Trainings to sharpen your skills

  5. Platforms to share your ideas

  6. Lunch and learns to learn from others

  7. Networking with smart people around you.

  8. The tacit knowledge that you gain never leaves you

Susie’s Answer

Nothing is more rewarding for me than working on something that has a tangible customer impact. Whether you are making products that people can enjoy or products that enhance their lives, you will be much more motivated to work when you can see the larger picture of how your contribution impacts others. Learning from others that you would otherwise not have access to is a also a huge reward. Try to find something that you can surround yourself with talented people that you can learn from and can help you along the way.

Albert’s Answer

I always try to evaluate my chosen career on a few things. Yes, the extrinsic benefits you listed are important, but once you get to a certain point other things become clear. Two of those to me are my manager and the people I work with. Your manager is important because they have a certain amount of control on your career path. Are they willing to help you grow? Do they value you as a person or are you just a cog in a machine? The people you work with are also important because you will spend a significant amount of your life working, why wouldn't you want to spend that time with people you enjoy being around? The company you work for affects both of those as well because some company culture's allow for flexibility and some are very strict.

My first motivation at work is honestly my pay check since that is how I support my family. But my second biggest motivator is intrinsic and that is seeing people that you lead get promoted to move on to their desired field. If you are in a position to lead people or assist a peer in their goals it can be the most rewarding part of your job.

Cerebral exercise! Learning something new everyday is rewarding. I am fortunate to have the ability to work remotely, meaning, where I have wifi, I am in my office. I often spend my workday at my house on Cape Cod. The work/life balance, if possible, helps employees work their best. Good managers and companies recognize this.

For me the motivation is working with smart people to solve the most difficult problems. Clients come to us with issues that they are not able to address themselves, and it is a great feeling to get a breakthrough where they are able to solve a problem such as increasing profitability of a business they were going to close.

Greetings Abbas,

I've been working long enough to know that to have all of the benefits that you mention without personal satisfaction in any way is to have nothing at all, in my view. I encourage you to explore and know your gifts, talents, interests and strengths. If you can connect all of that to a job/career, you won't be working. You'll be soaring to recognition that will promote you ... sometimes farther than you can even imagine. All the best!
