Academic Premium?

That was quick. Union Switch & Signal came back with a pretty generous opening offer. About 5 days ahead of schedule.

I've long figured that my talents were (maybe) worth a great deal more than I was paid here, but that I made up for it with work flexibility, tuition benefits, and fun diverse projects. Later, I may put up a protected post giving more details about the delta between what I have now and what I could have. But for now, those of you with opinions about either professional programming or academic jobs... what do you figure the academic flexibility premium is?

The comparison isn't bad, because the benefits look very similar and there is no fuzzy cost-of-living calculations: I would be staying in Pittsburgh.
