To change jobs or not?

An opportunity has come up. What to do? What to do?

On the plus side:

  • It’s in IT
  • It’s the kind of liaison role I loved working in before – some requirements writing, testing – general go-between for developers and business
  • Would earn almost the same money in 6 months as I currently get in a year
  • Would be employed by a bank … possibilities for moving up possibly greater than current role
  • Extremely tight project timeframes so would be a challenge
  • Change of scenery – it’s coming up 3 years in my current job
  • It would be closer to Fuel

On the minus side:

  • It’s unexpected, unplanned
  • It’s a contract role – good money but less security (4-6 months)
  • I’m needed here – I am a source of support for my manager, people seem to value what I do – how will I tell my boss?
  • I’m comfortable
  • I don’t feel *that* enthusiastic mind you that might be ‘Monday-itis’ … even though it’s Tuesday but you know what I mean.
  • I don’t know if I have that drive in me anymore – the drive that gets you to work at 7.30am and you drag yourself away at 7.30pm and work at weekends – I gather this is what is needed on the job

Shit, the pluses outweigh the minuses – I wasn’t expecting that.
