    Unhappy Struggling to make this decision

    - new job
    - +$15k salary
    - significantly more responsiblity (digital marketing for a national clinic, $10m/ yr in spend
    - leaving behind 3 year job with great coworkers who have become friends

    Sometimes i think it isnt all about money, but this is a 6 figure job (op is almost 31) and i think its time.

    Digital marketing is a $20/hr job. If someone pays you 2.5x that, the answer is yes.

    It’s a step change in your permanent income/wealth

    It’s a stepping stone to the next big promotion/raise

    If you don’t take the job, by definition you are selling your labour for $15k below market

    Why give your employer that gift? It’s a no-brainer

    If you’re feeling generous give your current employer a chance to beat that offer (by $5k at least)
    watch paul hogan movies and eat kangaroo and koala bears and play digiriedoos and throw boomerangs and drive outbacks. So whatever.

    So reading this and talking to you about it there's a few things I see that are HUGE concerns for you.

    - Leaving your colleagues
    - The height of responsibility, pay, and the fear that comes with it with such a big leap.

    Truth be told YOU wanted this right!? When God/Allah/Fate comes knocking at your door you sometimes have to make that jump to the next transition in life. Not only will you get paid well but you will acquire more marketable skills to help you ascend to the next level in your life. I dealt with the same thing a few years back and to get it at 31 would be a blessing! I understand the trepidation of leaving something you're comfortable with though. My biggest fear was failure at some point and the perpetual imposter syndrome.

    I say take some time to think about it. I'm sure that this is an expiring offer so please take some time to reflect on it. I'm sure the colleagues you met will totally understand and I know that it's hard to sever those friendships but maybe you will see them around town and keep in contact with you.

    EDIT: see my sig

    New environment, new challenges, new people. 3 years at one place is a good stretch, at the low end of the 3-5 year window but the opportunity is there

    I left my last long-term company right at the 5 year mark and it was the most difficult thing I've done in recent memory, but it was totally worth it. Don't let it get to the point where your friends and connections to the place are so strong that you're legit unable to leave

    I had great people working with me my last job which i left 6 years ago. I still stay in touch w few of them and infact just went to a car show w one of them.

    I don't think that should keep you from taking that new job, who knows your new coworkers may be just as good or better. Besides give two week notice thank everyone at your current job and if you don't like the new job you could always possibly come back to the old one.

    I was underpaid for quite a few years but I really like my employer and am in a comfortable/flexible spot that I'm unlikely to get elsewhere. For me it definitely isn't all about the money but there is a break-even point. $15k a year is quite a bit. Did you try to get an increase out of your current employer?

    This isn't a bad idea; if your current employer can match or come close to what the new offer is that might be a good option. If they say no, well, you have the new job waiting.

    You should move around anyways tbh, even if your employer goes the unlikely route of matching the compensation. Keep yourself sharp and ready to adapt to change
