Need to be talked off the ledge.
I work at an advertising agency primarily on one account. I was approached by a recruiter that hails from a competitor to the account that I work on.
Pay is several thousands more. Benefits are substantially better. Opportunity to learn, as well as the mobility and job security is greater. I haven't signed a non-compete.
The agency that I work at isn't particularly healthy, and while I've been given an offer letter, my title and role at the competitor is kind of vague. I would be coming on board as a consultant and they would find out what I'm particularly good at.
Would I be an idiot for taking it considering how this might look to my coworkers and current client? Would I be an idiot not to take it given the higher pay, benefits, and all that comes with it? If this was anyone else it wouldn't be a big deal, but I feel like this could be a cluster because it's within industry...need perspective.
