    When I start getting comfortable, I start getting bored.  I voted “yes” for change!

    I vote “other.”  Go look elsewhere for a job that engages you with promotion potential. πŸ™‚

    I voted no only because I think you should get a promotion of bonus if you take this new job.  But I agree with @kay01 that you should look for a job that offers both!

    @MrsSaltWaterTaffy: this is an exciting decision! πŸ™‚ I feel like I would need a lot more informaiton about this new job to make a really informed decision but based on what you have said alone…..I would vote for you to do an interview and find out more information. just because there are bad remors does not mean that they are true. You need to ask yourself some questions: will you still have the same flexibility? are you concerned about loosing your current job? what can you see yourself doing in 5 years? does taking this new job a good step toward that goal? make a pro and con list once you have enough information. Feel free to dicuss this stuff on here or just ask yourself these qusetions. That should help!

    If you really have to make this decision tomorrow then my vote is no. It does not sound like you are even interested πŸ™‚

    Oh, and congrats to you on having the opportunity to choose between jobs πŸ™‚ Sometimes we just need to stop and count our blessings! Wink

    I am at a job that I’m comfortable in. I love my job, hate my company, and promotion potential is non existent. I was offered another position with more money at a much smaller company. I just couldn’t accept the position. I felt deep down in my gut that it wasn’t the right opportunity, it wasn’t the right time. I’d say if you aren’t excited about the position don’t take it but if you’re ready to move on get out there and start applying to other places. Clearly your name is out there, take advantage. Find a position you’re truly excited about with a company you want to work for.

    I don’t like change. I like things to be easy. I’m not very ambitious. πŸ™‚ So, I voted no.

    It sounds as though you dislike the job you already have, so worst case senario- if you dislike the new job, you’ll still be in the same situation. I say go for it. There’s a chance you could like it better!
