Last few months at work were HELL for me as my new manager just didn’t like my style. The type of days were I’d want to cry on the way in.
so obviously I started looking for a new job. I like the company just fine, but not working for her. I really had no intent of leaving the company before this. This week I got word I have TWO offers. Not written yet, so I have time to think.
i saw an opening at my current company (20 minute drive from home plus another 10 to walk into my desk ask our parking lot is HUGE.)
It’s with a department that works closely with mine, and I know the hiring manager and her manager well, and they know my work. Swallowed my pride and asked my manager if I could put in for a transfer, as I’ve been in my role for less than a year. She was very nice and supportive of it, and even made a call to the hiring manager to say I had her full support.
it IS listed at a lower grade level that what I currently am. I don’t know yet if I’d have to go down to that or if they will sort it out with HR to make it work. Guessing I may have to go down a bit, but I’m ok with that. I am more concerned about a good fit.
23 vacation days, 6 sick days. 15% bonus. Work from home 1 or so days a week.
Taking on a role that is similar to what I was doing before I came to work for my new manager 7 months ago. So I know I’m good at it, and it really is a challenging role no matter how long you stay in that area.
i think they will not come in as high as what I’m making now, but maybe $10k less. And tbh I make a lot of money so I don’t “need” it. If I have to go down at all in my current company, the pay will be pretty comparable.
18 vacation days, 23 after 2 years. Sick time wrapped in that. 10% bonus.
BUT it’s full time work from home. I guess I could go into the office, but none of the team is even in the state so isn’t necessary. And since I’m in IT, nobody needs to be in the same room.
on one hand, I like my company and feel like I could do well growing there. I really didn’t intend to leave. Other hand, I love the idea of working full time from home, saving that 1.5 hours of getting “work ready” and driving in per day, and being there every day in the summers and when my 12 year old gets home from school. Especially nice in high school! I’m also trying to launch a side business so the extra time would be handy.
What would YOU do? And if it matters, both these companies are big Fortune 500, household name companies.
