Recently, I was contacted by a recruiter for a position in Jacksonville, FL (about 35 minutes from my house). The position was a step down in title and responsibility, but a step up in pay. The company is Owens Corning, so they have money to throw around. I went on-site and everything seemed normal, but just didn't seem like as good of a vibe as my current company. Yesterday an offer came in for $30K over my current salary plus a 15% annual bonus (currently a much smaller bonus). After sleeping on it, I declined the offer today without any assurances from my current company that they would meet what the offer was. Did I just make the biggest mistake of my professional life?
Nah. Always go with your gut. Besides... offers come all the time. Another one will come sooner than later if you're meant to leave.
