Two corporations have put out Help Wanted ads. Aside from the information below, the two companies' offers are exactly the same. From a purely financial standpoint, which one should you work for?
Company A will pay you $100,000 a year and give you a $20,000 raise yearly.
Company B will pay you $50,000 every six months and give you a $5,000 raise every six months.
Since there are only two choices for the answer, you now know which one to choose. But why is it that you earn more money with the other company?
As seen in the image above, if you actually calculate things out, you'll see that the salary for Company B will always be $5,000 higher than the corresponding salary at Company A.
