Choosing an employer should be easy - find the company info, look at what they offer and make a decision to apply. Let's assume that you cover the requirements, and the company offers an excellent pay. If you are lucky enough you will be called for an interview and later hired. But is that the best way to choose an employer?
In today`s competitive job market, people often change companies and agree to conditions far beneath their desires. Because let`s be honest... who can afford to stay without the job for months and wait to find the right company?
There are few things, however, crucial when choosing an employer, that has nothing to do with pay or requirements.
Long Term Opportunities
If you are just looking for any job, long term opportunities probably don't matter to you. But if you want to build a career and have stable employment that is an important question to have in mind. Companies that keep low turnover rates provide opportunities for its employees, even in the cases where the business has no high hierarchy.
Company culture and values
No matter what industry are you in the way you do business represents who you are as a person and vice versa. Communication on all levels should be precise and accurate so employees, as well as clients and partners, have a rewarding work experience.

Reputation of the company
There always will be people who will try to damage a business`s reputation, but if an employer manages to have plenty of good reviews its standing should be set in stone. Company`s reputation is the sacred key to success.
As Karen Carlisle put it: "Low morale plus low loyalty equals high turnover. That can hobble a company" Who will dare to leave a place where one feels like home and make great money? The low turnover rates are one of the indicators that a company treats its employees with respect.
Last but not least, the work environment should be important to you when you choose a job even if it is just any job. The workspace is like your car - you spend the most of your day there and believe it or not it influences your mood, productivity, and creativity. In bright, well maintained and clean offices, for example, the atmosphere is much more positive
