What really matters, the role or the dole

This is that time of the year when companies complete their ith Up-Raisals. This is usually a zero-sum game of one-up-manship between the employer and the employees.

Many companies have bizzare appraisal processes. Some companies claim to have "transparent" processes, but like most most teasers in Delhi Malls, there's usually a slip between the cup and the hip.

Any ways, the Dullbert funda of choosing the best job, is a simple Analytical Hierarchy Process.. a job should give you:

- Interesting work
- Work Life balance
- Lots of money

Now, if you have 100 points, rate how important each parameter is to you. Then, given two companies, score them, on the 3 parameters, compute a weighted score and decide which one is best for you.
