I think you did too. Best of luck. Enjoy your new experience.

In just about every job that I have had, the first year is the hardest - getting the lay of the land, who does what, who you can pi** off and who you can't, who to go for what, etc. So be aware that the first year might be a bit uncomfortable simply because it is new and different.

At 32 you're too young to have no upward mobility .... take the bump in pay and chase the corporate ladder.

The following are major life stressors: new job, getting married, birth of a child, loss of a parent/spouse/child, loss of a job, divorce, serious illness in family. Treat yourself well for the first year of any of the above.

Accept the position if offered. I think you will enjoy the change. It is a positive event.
