    I would go for the one that has more opportunity to advance you in your career. Time off is important, but not as important as possibly advancing regularly.

    If at some point, making more money is important than def take the new job option! As you can advance and be challenged.

    If you really don’t need to be advancing and don’t like change, then stick to the current job. For some people, a job is a job!

    I actually like the sound of JobA – here you are an individual.

    JobB sounds like you are a number – no personality.

    I would go for a job that you can advance in. My salary is currently capped so that’s why I want to move on. Once you reach the top I think it’s time to try new things!

    I made that choice 5 years ago and I haven’t regretted it once…I went with the #2 option.

    I loved my job, loved the people, loved the relaxed atmosphere, didn’t really like the commute; but I knew I couldn’t advance very far.  So I found a job really close to home that was going to make me take more responsibility.

    I like that it made me grow up. I like that it’s with a big company which definitely has more perks than downfalls, and I’ve advanced in my department every year. I realized the other job was good for 22 year old me, but 30 year old me needs the job I have now, and I would have missed the opportunity if I hadn’t grabbed it.

    Good luck, I know it’s a hard decision!

    @AmeliaBedelia:  advancement is not everything…. my mom went from a job that paid well, had 100% benefits and a guaranteed retirement income to a job that paid $4000 more, and no benefits at all… she regretted it a few years down the road.

    Depends. Are you the kind of person who wants a job or a career? Do you value flexibility more or career growth more? How often do opportunities arise for you to make this kind of change?

    Do you want a job or a career?  Do you plan to stay at home with kids once you have them?  How long from now is that?

    Job B is much more of a career job while you may be happier in Job A if you don’t intend to be in the workforce for forever.
