Hey guys! Hope everyone is holding up well during these difficult times.
I need to make a wise decision and no place but here to ask. (IFSQN is like family).
So the current company I work at has numerous issues and I have been actively looking elsewhere.Just to name a few:
1. Bad reaction to COVID-19.
2. Food Safety and general culture.
3. Not much growth. I did get a title of QA Manager and I am able to grow on my own as I already have, but no one around me is helping me grow either. No mentors no people I can learn from. My ideal place is to be surrounded by smart, reliable and knowledgeable people.
4. Not good benefits.
So I finally got a job offer at a company that has better benefits, MUCH higher pay, Position is SUPERVISOR and NOT MANAGER. (Which I have no issue with). The people seem smart and knowledgeable with lots of experience (could sense it from the interview), company reputation is better.
Only negative thing is longer commute..... I was driving around 45 mins- 1 hour (1 hour being with traffic). Now it will be 1 hour- possibly 1 hour 20 mins (with traffic).
I feel like the new offer is a lot better for me, career wise. But the commute is the only issue and I am afraid it will drown me and possibly be dissatisfied. I am not able to move now closer but have plans to next year.
Any advice from folks who have been in this situation? What did you do? FYI I live in Central Florida. (DISNEY TRAFFIC!!!).
