I think many of my own answers would be situational. Like company benefits; I think those should be based on what would be most-likely to keep employees productive and happy to be working for that company. I like working from home, that means a lot to me.

What communication works best for that client? Do that.

I don’t think a national minimum wage is a good idea, but then again, I’m against most federal regulation of what should be local matters.

Its a great list overall. I think I would enjoy working at a company that used this list and just about everybody there was on the same page as me.

I’m in a Starbucks??? Ha, ha, ha. No. Make it I’m picking my kids up from school. Oh look, I’ve brought my own tools.
