What matters the most to you? Profile, Package or Brand of the Company?

Profile>Brand>Package
I think that the profile offered would be the most important factor for me, since my entire career will depend on that and how I perform. I cannot work as a Consultant or an investment banker just because they pay a bomb. It has to be more about the JD.
Next comes the brand. This is for two reasons:
1. A good brand is likely to have opportunities for growth, and will perhaps provide a good work environment with a vast client base. 
2. It will be good during exit, as a good brand name would help in my future job applications. 
I think the pay package will increase as and when we progress further, working for a good brand in a good role.
But again, I am an aspirant without any post-MBA exposure, so perhaps my analysis is naive.
