So what? Are you saying that right now everyone in finance is only interested in salary? That corporations/businesses don't have to consider other factors like work/life balance, benefits, location, etc. to attract the best employees?

There are many highly qualified Millennials that have a choice with where they work. And there are many industries where it's hard to find good, qualified employees. The recession isn't a wild card that expires the other poster's experience. I can tell you I made a similar decision a week ago (turned down a job offered largely due to location), post-recession.

I think the latter, that in a bad economy employees take whatever they can get. Arguing over this is just going to be over anecdotes over how they perceive the job market to be.
