What matters to you as an employee?

During one of my flights this week, I read an article about retaining employees, flexibility, perks, etc., and I am wondering if you all get perks that keep you at your current jobs. I work from home and travel for my position. I'm a permanent salaried employee. I had thought when I started this job that working from home would be great, that travelling would be great, and that getting reimbursed for internet and cell phone service would be great, but I will say that paying for travel and waiting at least two weeks for reimbursement is not great. It's been a struggle for me all year to be able to keep working while finding time to complete and submit expense reports. I still have expenses to submit before the end of the year. I'm also standing to lose over two weeks of PTO; so, the time off mentioned as a benefit when I started this job isn't really much of a benefit.
I know there are pros and cons to all jobs, but is your job heavier on the pros side? I hope so! Let us know!
