I need some help. I have a decision to make. Recently, I have had an offer from another company and I am considering taking the job. Unfortunately, this is not an easy choice to make. Allow me to list the Pros/Cons for each place.
The Place That Shall Not Be Named
-Vacation Time: As of now, I get three weeks of paid vacation per year, plus the option to purchase a week (which, I did this year, and it only comes to $27 each pay.)
-I have plenty of friends there and that is where I met Lindsey.
-I am on a path to being promoted.
-From where we live, I have more options of places I can go to work. TPTSNBN has at least eight different places I can work at from here.
-Comfortable and knowledgeable.
-I have to work third shift.
-I cannot have a beard.
-Opportunities to move past GM.
The New Place
-Higher base pay, bigger bonus.
-More locations across the country.
-No third shift.
-Allows a beard.
-No vacation for a year, after that I only get one week after my first year, then two weeks after two years. I will be 36 by the time I get back to three weeks.
-Longer hours. No one would say this to me, but it seems that the managers work longer hours than we do. Will I see Lindsey less?
-Fear of the unknown. I have to learn everything again, I have to be the bottom guy. I worked hard to move past that, do I really want to go back to the beginning?
-More locations around the country, but less in this area. I would only have two options.
What would you folks do if you were me?
