    No brainer if you’re thinking strategically (brain). Your heart will keep you stuck. You seem young, take the opportunity to advance and SAVE MONEY! Believe me, you’ll be 40 before you know it looking back thinking I should have saved more, sooner.

    You definitely need to take the new position.  As you mentioned, there is no room to grow where you’re currently working.  Your boss and coworkers will understand and if they are truly your friends, they will want the best for you.

    You don’t stay at a job because you like the people when there are no other benefits to it.  Take the new job.   This is literally a no-brainer.

    Take the new job. Your post lays out the pros and cons, and you can see there are definitely more pros with the new company. You can always schedule lunches or times to meet up with your old coworkers. Do what’s best for you and your career.

    Ill go against the grain here and say stay at your current job. There’s more to life than money and if you get on well at your job you should appreciate it. How many complaints do we have on here about horrible coworkers? It’s the people you work with that make your job enjoyable.

    LittleButtons :  Take the new job.  As someone who loves my work family, they change.  And have changed yearly.  I’ve been looking for a new job for a while.  The people I started with?  They’ve changed at least four times.  All various positions.

    Congrats on the new position! You made the right choice. It’s always harder to make that jump and leave a place you’re comfortable, but in the long run it’s best for personal and career development. Good luck!

    Change is scary. But this seems like it would be a good change. Once you get over the hump, you’ll be fine.

    Take the new job! Even if the money was the same the growth is not at your current role. 

    I would continue to have a mentor/mentee relationship with your boss, strong work relationships can grow beyond working with someone.
