I am looking at the job market at the moment, and trying to figure out what would be "worth it" in terms of target salary.
One of the things that making it difficult is on call pay and bonus.
I get these things at the moment, in addition to a base salary. (on call is about 1 week in 6)
I also get some "overtime" when it is for work that must be done out of hours. (scheduled outages etc.)
And overall, this improves my base salary by around 10-15% most years.
How would you value that when looking at new jobs? Is it reasonable to take current effective compensation (including the non guaranteed extra pay), and compare that against what's contractually guaranteed when looking at a new position?
