Being the only male among a bunch of female nymphs may do it. Or a load of money so I can move to a different area for chunks of the year.

If its just money, you have major problems. The dollar is usually rated about 4th on the list of what motivates people about their jobs.
Iowa State and Ames offers CMC everything anyone would ever hope for in their job.
Plus few if any of us has the opportunity in our job to create a legacy, the kind insitutions name buildings for or erect statues..ie Bill Synder.
None of that would be possible at LSU or USC...other than more money he will never be able to spend.
Senior leadership that are sexist, racist, egotistical, only care about themselves/not the staff

Leaving iowa last day was today. I'll make 20k more doing the same role elsewhere in a similar cost of living situation and less taxes
Yeah the climate was a big factor I have pretty bad joint pain for someone my age and also pretty bad depression that is worsened by winter. I think the COL is a wash in that rent is more but almost everything else is less.
Welcome to Texas. Don't **** it up. ;)

Oddly, the ability to do 'quality' work. Through my life, I've always been faced with the 'bottom-line'. Literally. I was forced to cut 'quality' to maximize output. And, then the company would use 'marketing' to make up for it. When I went to work on my own, I focused only on 'quality'. And, believe it or not, many of my systems (Linux: definitely NOT Microsoft) over 20 years old are still operational necessities with an ROI shorter than any 'branded' products. So, the ability to build it the way I want is by far the most important criteria for any job.
