For what it is worth, a friend changed jobs a few years ago from one mega-corp where he had worked for a long time to another in the same line of work, but it is amazing how much he loves his new job and the effect the change has had on his attitude on life. the change did wonders for him, so another thing to consider.

Compensation is about the same. The biggest advantage is proximity to my home. The company is less structured and political. My friend who is working there says it is a good place to work.

In a nut shell, the potential value is not significant.

BTW, thanks for the comments.

Babysitting is not my cup of tea. I do not think that I have the patience to take on the task. Being an individual contributor is fine to me.

I am glad that it turns out well for your friend. Grass is greener once in a while.

I just read through this thread and based on your (the op's) responses, my suggestion is to stay away from a management position.
