Know what type of schedule your target company keeps, they vary greatly. Privately held companies tend to work a lot of overtime which is great for compensation but, terrible for life outside of work. To be honest since the 2008-2010 downturn most companies fall into this trend since skilled labor seems to be difficult to come by.
