I would take the other job. It sounds like your company is a dead-end job that won’t offer promotions or raises. Honestly, I can’t even imagine why you are even thinking about taking the one at your current company.

growth and leadership opportunities + $15k – $20k pay increase = new job 😉  That’s how I feel but you have to do what makes the most sense for your situation if offered the job. Good luck!

In the big picture you haven’t been with your company long.  I’d jump ship if there’s no room for growth.  Absolutely nothing wrong with that.

Why are you hesitating? Are there factors you left out re this current place, or do you just feel comfortable with the devil you know?

based on what you shared, I say congrats for getting a new job with a nice pay raise!

My mother works and office-type job and she says people leave all the time when they aren’t moving up or getting raises. Then a year or two later, they’re back making a ton more than before.

Don’t take a lateral move.

I know change can be scary, but on top of your current company not offering you much hope for a better salary or position, it’s not very positive that you say

“They recently changed our incentives and made it almost impossible in my position to meet you’re targets.” 

That’s discouraging and demoralizing, it’s like they’re setting up their employees for failure so they can save a few bucks and then blame the employee.

I’d go for the new company.

railroaderwifeyxo :  I don’t even see the tiniest bit of incentive to stay with the current company.  Definitely move on!!

ALWAYS go where the growth is.

It’s scary taking a leap to a new job, but I’ve never regretted doing it.

As much as it’s wonderful to be a loyal employee, it only makes sense as long as it benefits you as well. You’re at a dead end at your current company, and you have a new opportunity staring you at the face. Go for it!

$15-20k rise and better opportunities sounds like a no brainer to me!

railroaderwifeyxo :  I would take the higher paying job even if you’ve invested in other other company it’s clear they don’t invest in their people.

railroaderwifeyxo :  I think there is no question, take the new job. I left my last job because there was no room for me to grow and move up, and I took a job that has a lot of promotional opportunities. No matter how much you love working where you do, if there is no room to grow, its a dead end. Youre stuck.
