The Plot Thickens

DH's current job has offered him more money and a more secure position to stay. He'll have to run the numbers tonight when he gets home from work. It isn't as much pay as what the other job is offering, but current job matches 5% in the 401K, not just 3%, has a Christmas cash bonus, a Christmas 401K bonus contribution, company stock, and the insurance is better. Plus he'd be home. This just got interesting.

    Sometimes more money isn't always all that and a bag of chips. However, always have to be careful if a company knows you're leaving. Good luck and so nice to have options!

    Lots of trade-offs there! Good luck with the decision making. I agree with the above, the non-financials can make a big difference. I started off making 27.5k less with my current job than with the previous one, a difference decreased as in your case by better bonuses, insurance, and retirement contributions, but the biggest difference to me is the fit--it's just a lot better for me here than at the previous job, and that's worth a lot!

    How exciting to have another potential option! I know you would rather have your husband at home.

    It's nice to have choices. Just be careful the current employer isn't the type to hold a grudge against him into the future, when he wants another raise or a promotion or whatever.
