I'm not all that surprised
The biggest surprise for me was that the capabilities for a manager is not important since I've had horrible bosses in the past and left jobs because I wasn't compensated enough to deal with that.  On the other hand I'm not at all surprised that  "bonus opportunities," "involvement in setting company strategy and goals," are not important because for me it either means more work with no guarantee that it will be worth my time and if it is part of my role to set company strategy and goals then it is just part of my job not an added benefit.  The issue of a prestigious company I can understand too because I have worked for both large and very visible companies and small companies, very little changes except that the average person recognizes the company you work for when it comes up in conversation.

Not too Surprising
After the excitment of college fades, the reality of paying off the student loans, the car and the mortgage set in. Soon enough, providing for the little "microprogrammers" will become the main concern in the lives of most people. What you aptly describe as the package becomes a lot more important than any pie-in-the sky, and most will take well-earned satisfaction in exercising their hard-won skills in overcoming the challenges involved in keeping the digital world reliably turning. It's a big part of growing up.
