Should I Wait For The Upcoming Layoff Or Take A Lesser Job Offer Now? – Daily Dilemma
Here is Today’s Daily Dilemma:
Recently I was notified by my employer that everyone in my office would be laid off. I have been with the company for quite some time and they offered a bonus if I stay until a specified date. Over the years, my co-workers and I have developed a special bond and we are more like a family than co-workers, and we are all devastated that our time together is coming to an end. I have already been offered a job with another company in a field I always wanted to work in, but with poor benefits and (I’m sure) less pay. Do I take the job, losing the bonus, leaving behind my work family, and take poor benefits, or do I stick it out until the very end and risk not being able to find another job for months or longer? I can’t picture jumping ship early, but I also need to be able to pay my bills in this tough economy.
The “Daily Dilemma” on the Sean and Richie Show is featured every weekday morning at 6:40am. We and the listeners take on someone’s problems and try to offer different perspectives. Now, these don’t have to be huge problems- it could just be something bothering you or a friend, or it could be some little thing you and another just can’t agree on. If you have a dilemma to share we’d love to hear it just e-mail us here at the show.
