    ok I have been working at a company for going on two years I'm underpaid and over worked. I like the industry I'm in but not my work environment. Our ceo spends money like it's going out of style and were really in debt. We have even had to pay employees late. It's an awesome product, and has a big future and the demand is outrageous. So if the company gets it's act together, ok the ceo does, wed all be rich. I went on an interview yesterday and it went great we talked for three hours. I more than likely will get paid more with the new job, but what I could make in the future would be lower. I love the industry of the new job. So should I stick it out or read the writing on the wall? Wife thinks I should take the new job.

    Take the new job. Sounds like your current company has the makings of a huge fail later on.

    I would take the new job. Happiness and less stress > money.

    I would never return to any job that does not pay on time.

    If you haven't already, sign up for direct deposit. Your money will be in the bank before the others receive their paycheck.

    Luck to you either way.

    Take the new job and on the side develop a product similar to the company you now work for and put them out of business later on.

    Over worked AND underpaid??!!:wow:

    Sounds like you're in a very unique position at your present job.

    By all means, chuck the past two years and go for the new job.

    thanks fellas, as for putting them out of business what makes it all super sticky is that it's with family. But ur right I can't put my life on hold for something that might not come.

    Were you offered a position? Did you discuss and negotiate salary? If you love the industry of the new job can you continue looking within that industry?

    To me, talking for three hours means nothing unless an offer letter with an acceptable dollar amount was presented.

    I would advise you to attack this from a position of strength (meaning how much you bring to the table) versus a position of weakness (how much you dislike your current situation).:wavey:

    Now there's a screen name I haven't seen in awhile. Welcome back.

    (Oh, yeah, OP. Sorry. Go for the new job if it's a healthy company)

    Allot of people would love to be in your situation. Sounds like you know what is best for you and your family. I know it is a hard decision to make. Good luck and prayers with it.

    thanks for the advice guys, whether you believe or not, i have been slapped in the face with a lot of what i would call signs in the last few days. i havent been presented an offer yet, but i recieved an email asking for a second interview the day after, so hopefully that is all good signs. they wanted to do a background check and what not first, and of course being a california gun owner, i had to be squeeky clean.
