For once I agree with Fletch....

I don't think the culture/fit vs. money should really come into play until you're senior management level, maybe even Exec level.  Harder and longer to find work at those levels, but if you're more junior take the money and then if it sucks, move on.

Not asking your company to match or bump isn't a horrible idea if you are thinking about staying for several years or more.  Research generally shows the most people separate within 12 months even if the company matched.

But you might go in and ask for a raise.  Arm yourself with some research about what a market rate is.  I wouldn't necessarily say "Company X offered this...", but a 10% raise is only keeping in line with inflation.

I'm the HR Director for the company, so that had something to do with it. I spent the last 5 years shaping the culture at this company and wasn't sure if I wanted to start from scratch at a new location.

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?

Completely voluntary. That's the worst part

First session is complete. It's also a coverup, so it's a process. 3-5 more hours to go.

Desantis allows Trump knob polishers a like-minded candidate to move to as Trump continues to ruin himself with independents.

Or, and hear me out, you could live in the state he is the Governor of and see the difference. I never once voted for Trump, was never a fan, but Desantis has done a good job thus far.

I consider myself more of a Libertarian than a Republican but am registered R because Florida doesn't have open primaries. I don't agree with all Rs and sometimes agree with things the Ds say. I don't toe any line, but I will say this, Ron Desantis is the best Governor this state has had in quite a while. People that live in Florida love him, and only people that drink from the faucet of left media will say otherwise. He has the entire right all the way through moderate and right-leaning Dems in his pocket here.
