When trying to determine whether one particular company would be a better fit for you than another, benefits can be overlooked in the excitement of getting your first management job. 

The objective of this assignment is to become aware of the incredible range of management benefits with their relative importance to you.  Often, management and employee benefits play a large part in the retention of both management and employees.  Unfortunately, many companies only give the minimum benefits, but you might not realize this until you have other experiences with other companies that you can tell one company from another.    

You’re going to look at employee benefits too since when employees have excellent benefits, this makes your job as managers that much easier.
