Keep in mind people have different lists, not simply different rankings. My complete list is:

1. Ethical company and people
2. Smart people
3. How it will help advance my career
4. Good opportunities for being challenged and my own learning and development
5. Corporate culture
6. Compensation (salary, options, benefits, etc.)
7. Location
8. Amount of travel

You'll notice for example that I don't care about job security, or what the company actually produces, or being able to work from home (and onsite has no meaning in the US).

Depends on the person. Just like any other countries.
