I chose #1. I finally got information on their study program and it's a great one. Their hours are good too. I just needed to talk to someone in the department and not HR. The 1.5 hr commute difference each way is what really pushed the decision.

Thank you all for your input.

Congratulations! I hope it turns out to be a great decision, and it did sound like the best one to me.

You are early in your career and I would recommend maximizing your fexibility (learn about more things) and advancement now because the more you can earn early in your career, the more you can save enough to retire earlier. The impact of this is huge if you model it. I agree that due to the commute option #2 is not a long term prospect, but I would go with option #2 if you can't find a similar option closer to home now. My plan would be to stay at Option #2 for 1 or 2 years at the most and learn all I could and get the best credentials possible with the big name company I was working for. Then, you should be able to take what you learned and look for a better paying job closer to home, assuming your family doesn't decide to move somewhere else all together at that time. If you decide to down throttle into a family oriented business it could then be at a higher level. Also, building diverse areas of experience now could save you from being unemployed if you hit hard times in the future.
