I demoted myself. I lovelovelove my job and my clients, but have an issue with the people I do it for. I've been feeling way too miserable/overwhelmed/depressed lately so I knew something had to change. I knew it'd come with a pay cut but I didn't realize it'd be so low. kinda shows how valuable they feel I am.

Wow. Here's hoping another firm nearby does similar work without being assholic.

from what you've posted about your current job I would take the offer!

I go back and forth with this place though, it's not always so bad, and we're kind of on an upswing right now. Also, this job that I was just offered would mean a pretty significant paycut--like several dollars an hour, and man, that really adds up. I think I'm going to ask about the benefits package and things like that, and see if there are other places I'd be saving money so that the wage cut isn't quite as painful. It's an environment I really want to work in, and it's a great company, but it's hard weighing that against several hundred dollars a month. (It's also where M works, and two of my bandmates, both being marks in both the PRO and CON column.)

LPTJ, help me make this decision.

I dunno man, several hundred dollars a month seems like a hell of a sacrifice to make if you're not absolutely miserable where you are. Unless the other place is like a dream position, or a stepping stone to something greater, far closer to home, etc. Seems like there would have to be some major material offset to justify completely overhauling your budget.

i think the first thing i would do is tell them "It's an environment I really want to work in, and it's a great company, but it's hard weighing that against several hundred dollars a month." and see if there's anything they can do.

i know nothing about the company or the type of position, but unless it's union or government, they might be able to work with you on the pay rate.

I am in the process of probably winding down at my current job. I just went into my boss' office and told him that I think I'm done here and that the vision of the company and the vision of the company as it was explained to me when I was hired are two different things. I need to figure out where I can go to work next, which is going to be tough and causing me more than a little bit of anxiety at this point.

Fuck.

Dave, that sounds really tough! Do you have any options jumping out at you, or is it going to be kind of a mess while you try to sort everything out and search for a new employer?

I have two or three potential opportunities.  Most of them might require major relocation
 There would potentially be a significant pay cut involved. I don't really know. I will probably be less emotionally involved in whatever I do next.

I just made an appointment with career services here today. Trying to do some lateral thinking about future career paths outside of academia. I think my skill set and experience could go a really long way in a lot of different contexts; just need to figure out what those are, and what's realistically pursuable without a ton of extra education.

So I got a phone interview for a job I REALLY don't want, so of course they invited me to an interview at their office on Thursday.  Sigh.

I'll also take the 40k job, I'm assuming they're looking for someone with a Bachelor of Music?

I paid $225 split back home.  4 blocks from campus.  I pay 2025 for a one bedroom (split) 4 blocks from my office and am at risk of getting murdered.
