Are the commutes comparable? If so (or if the new job’s is better), I’d probably take it, but I admit that less stressful/more mundane jobs seem really appealing to me these days haha

soon2bmrsruiz :  12k is pretty significant. Are the benefits comparable? Health, time off…etc. If so, I would probably take it.

soon2bmrsruiz :  If it’d only be for a year or so, I’d def go for it! Pocket that extra $ and hey, if it’s dull, the more time you’ll have to work on that baby registry haha

I would definitely take it… But i’m in a stressful position that I crave the boring. The extra time off and extra pay, especially if you think you’ll only be doing it for a little while would be enough for me to switch jobs

An extra 12k plus an extra 2.5 weeks of vacation time – I’d take it! 

Or, you could tell your current employer that you’ve been offered a position with those parameters and see if they will match them, or the equivalent.

Congrats, that’s awesome.

I’d take it! That’s quite the pay raise. Especially if you are planning on having a baby soon. It sounds like your current company won’t offer you the same benefits. And if the work is mundane, oh well. You’ll be paid a lot better to be bored. Plus all that time off!

soon2bmrsruiz :  don’t always bank on that. maybe the other coworker wasn’t all that great. it doesnt hurt to ask if you get the offer

soon2bmrsruiz :  I work in HR and always caution people about taking a match from a company they discuss leaving. The company knows you were looking/are looking for another job, and while they might match your pay to get you to stay, a lot of times that ruins the relationship. Not in every case, but I personally wouldn’t entertain a match. Leave with a good written notice, and on good terms, but if you intend to leave…leave. Just my 2 cents. I’ve seen it go sour for people mulitple times in my personal life.
