    Wow, your current job seems EXTREMELY similar to mine at the moment and I also am 2 years in. Small office, hardly any overtime, very laid back, etc..I think if I were you I would take the new job unless it’s really going to kill you taking the 2.5 weeks unpaid.

    harmonicsoul :  That’s a tough decision, but I think utlimately you should go with this new offer. You’re stuck at your current job in terms of pay and promotion, and this company seems to fit well with the future you’re looking towards. It stinks that you’d have to take your wedding off unpaid, but a 15% pay increase will definitely help ease that problem, and it’s the only truly major problem I see with accepting that position.

    I hope everything works out for you, whichever job you go with. Best of luck!

    I read your other thread, and I really think you should go for the new job. It seems like a good opportunity for growth, and you can relocate when you need to, and you can’t discount the serendipity of them reaching out to you!

    harmonicsoul :  I voted to take the new role because it is so easy to become complacent when you are not challenged with career development/goals, etc.

    Now… If you just want an easy job with no growth, obviously you should stay where you are. Some people are happier being in a comfortable and familiar environment. 

    Let us know what you decide and congrats!

    Is the new health expenses and toll costs you listed per year? 

    If that’s the case I feel like the 20% increase will offset the other $ related cons and just make sure you use up your PTO each year 🙂 

    my vote is for the new offer!

    harmonicsoul :   Hon you gotta do what you gotta do and besides I’m thinking your boss might be a lil distracted anyways.  Stay safe okay?

    How about take the job but negotiate a late start date after your wedding/honeymoon? That way you will be all set to handle more work without all the wedding stress to worry about. And it will be something new and exciting 🙂
