Re: Stay for a comfortable job?


I, for one, think you're doing the right thing. Except for being on the "brink" of ER, my scenario was almost identical to the one you described (this was a few years ago). I also opted for the job that's just a few miles away vs. 45 minutes away. Closer to home means more time with family. More money never hurts, either. I've been super happy and hope you will be as well.

Best of luck.

Persistence and determination are omnipotent.

Re: Stay for a comfortable job?

Your post is timely for me. This past March I was faced with a similar decision. In my case the career change was with the same company and I was not able to reduce my commute. I made the move knowing that failing in this new position would end my career with company I've been with for over 13 years. At the moment loving every minute of it - lots of new challenges - work is actually interesting / fun again. Still have all of the bullsh** associated with a public company though. Trying to hang for few more years (8) which would get my 3 kids through college.

Good luck to us Both!!!
