It all comes down to the stock options or discounted stock. Better stock options or discounted stock could easily surpass a 10% raise in base compensation.

I would say 50% bump in pay, taking another job when there is nothing wrong with your current job is a huge risk, what if you have to work with douche bags or enter into a hostile work environment etc. I would not move for less than a 50% bump. At this point in my career I would need a 60% raise to get me to move, I don't really care about pay grades or any of that, I know what im worth and that's really all there is to it.

Of course it isn't everything. My question was are you going to add that money in to your calculation when you say they would have to have a minimum increase in salary of X? If not, seems to me like you are discounting it.

Yes, of course. However, it isn't something I'm going to benefit from for about 30 years. It won't provide help me improve my spendable income/lifestyle while in my working days. One of the reasons I'm pursuing this company in the first place is their generous 401k plan. I've also strayed away from companies that have had poor 401k plans.
