If you ask for a match and they say no, well… another company seems to think that you are worth more. With an offer in hand, there is very little risk on asking for a match. You can also just give your notice. Every time I did that, my manager asked if money was the issue (it wasn’t, moved for love), but they were willing to bring salary in the conversation.

Would take it 100%. I work in an extremely mundane position at a law firm but $12k + better benefits is a great offer. You can work your way into a more interesting position at the firm later on, which will likely have even better pay.

i’d go and give it a try though. i once faced the same situation as you, less than a year working at the previous company when i got another offer from another with higher pay and other benefits. i didn’t remember i had a good night rest for the past few days just to contemplate whether i should take it or leave it. same reason as why i don’t quite willing to leave because the bosses are nice, also enjoyed the work environment as well as the colleagues as they were really very helpful and there seems no such thing as a hierarchy in the office and everyone is going along very well. but then, thinking of how i really want my future career life to be, i decided to try and take the new job offered. i was indeed faced some troubles in adapting, more workloads were given to me and all, pretty stressful at first. again, i think maybe this is a new start outside my comfort zone, to train myself to be better and faster in time management and everything related to it. i am now still working at the second company i got into after the previous one, and has been here for 9 months now (time really flies) and i got everything settle quite as fast as i did at the previous company. i think if you would want to try and take risk, everything would definitely comes into place and paid off. Good Luck! All the best for your career!
