Could you please check this paragraph?

One of the most important benefits to remaining at the same job for a long time is dependability. To put in another way, when you work for years in a company, you will probably be able to be trusted; consequently, you can be relied on more to take much more responsibilities and being promoted to a higher position, seniority, for example.

Thanks Tedmc for your correction.

Could any teachers please check what Tedmc suggested sound natural and are correct for the following reasons?

1) Can we use "preset perfect" in time clause when?
2) I think it is "perceived" not "peceived". However, I feel that "perceive" in this meaning doesn't work here.
3) Shouldn't it be like "responsibilities to be promoted to a higher position and to gain seniority." to form a parallel structure?

This is not a "time clause". The present perfect tense is more appropriate when talking about one's work experience.

2) I think it is "perceived" not "peceived". However, I feel that "perceive" in this meaning doesn't work here.
You are right about the typo error. On second thoughts, "considered" would be a better word. It is to emphasize that the statement is not a statement of fact.

3) Shouldn't it be like "responsibilities to be promoted to a higher position and to gain seniority." to form a parallel structure?
"To" is understood and not necessary the second time.
