    brother bogs need your honest advise here:

    my wife just started her new job this month in another corporation one of the biggest in their industry.

    now our dilema is like this her former boss a foreigner is asking her to come back. compared to her former company they are in top 32 while the other is in top 5.

    here are the pros and cons on each company

    Pros of Company A ( former)
    1. light workload (8-5)
    2. knows everbody
    3. familiarity with work
    4. company car

    COns of Company A (former)
    1. erratic behaviour of GM foreigner boss
    2. no increase for the last 2-3 years
    3. company car needs to be replaced ( more than five years already)
    4. faction among employees
    5. no more growth in terms of promotion


    Pros of Company B ( New company)
    1. good package ( salary, car and other benefits)
    2. top 5 in their industry
    3. room for growth


    COns of company B
    1. long working hours but the official is still 8-5
    2. familaiarty with the new systems and procedure of the company.


    i told my wife that her previous employer must make a written offer of the package so that we could study it.

    we have one month to decide whether to go back or not to her previous company.


    another serious thing to consider is my wife being pregnant we know that in her previous company she won't have any preoblem being pregnant. We have no idea on how they treat pregnant women in her new company plus the fact she is not regualr yet she is under probational status.

    Too many unknown factors, man.
    I'll just pray that you make the right choice together.

    your wife should identify:
    1. factors that make her happy in a job
    2. factors that make her feel fulfilled
    3. her short/mid-range/short-term goals both personal and professional

    now she should evaluate which of the two is in the best position for her to realize the goals set.

    happiness is a must...no matter if one is paid a lot, if that person is not happy, it would be difficult to maximize his/her potential.

    Try to find out the policy of the new company as regards maternity benefits and privileges so that you can make a more well-informed decision. May you be guided well in your choice.

    neither ways you are still both lucky 'coz you are both in each others arms everytime office & working hours are finish.

    for me, it's very difficult & very frustrating.
    pagkatapus ng trabaho i'll have to go home to my pad and sleeps alone every nite of each day for the whole year round.
    and only to have the privilege to spend more than a month ONLY with my family during my holidays.

    Just try to enjoy the company of each others arms. Don't mind the amount of money you will be earning sa ngayon. marami pang darating na mga magagandang offers kapatid. Piliin nyo nalang ang option na mas comportabli sa inyo.

    Do consider the impact your wife's job would have on time to be spent in rearing your kids. If I were you, the job that would let mommy spend more time with the kids would be more ideal, especially since you're out of the country most of the time. Though this may not work if the wifey is career-oriented. Oh, boy... deciding is really hard... ;)

    In the end, it's still between you and your better half. We know you'll both make the right decision... :)

    Parang wala sumagot sa tanong a
    Ako sagot ko yung B , top 5 na company and marami room for going up if your wife is ambitious at matapang
    Depends din sa personality ng wife mo
    Will she let family get in the way of work or vice versa?
    Anyway wag ka na magtrabaho , pabayaan mo na siya kumita , tumambay ka nalang sa range , sarap buhay ng sponsored shooter hehe

    I was at the crossroads last week. I submitted my resignation last week to work for a Ford dealership. My boss called me for a meeting Thursday, matched the dealership's offer and offered to train me to manage a tire and lube express.

    Stayed with the company not only because of money, but I enjoy working with my co-employees, and have a good rapport with customers.

    Your wife may tell the current employer that you decided to resign because things are not working out for her. It would be unethical for the employer to ask where she would be working after she resigns. In case the employer asks where she would be working, just tell them you'll take a rest and look for another job.

    ill go with what Mikol implied..kung saan masaya yun ang piliin..kailangan din i balance ang career with the family..If your wife WP22 is familiar/comportable with company A..and your wife is an asset to the company..she needs to ask a Raise.

    CXray ..saan ka sa Riyadh?

    Bro, if the wifey is pregnant then you might consider geography as a deciding factor. Which job offers a shorter and more comfortable commute? Kakabit narin nito ang work hours. Carrying a child for 9 months is stressful enough. She shouldn't be subjected to more unecessary stress. Just my 2 menthos worth! Good luck!
