Well as I was starting work on my future house in Sheffield I got a call
Email from Norton Motorcycles. Basically what it said was:


We have a vacancy for a Web/IT Developer, to basically run the IT Department.
If you are still Interested would you be kind enough to give me a call.

Norton P.A. Lady


So basically they have upped the Salary from 25k which was on offer last time
to 28k, but I mentioned that I am now on 33k she has said she'd try to get
30k going up to 33k in 6 months once we are happy everything is working. It's
only 20 days holiday as opposed to the 25 days I have with Kids but the working
hours are flex-able. Barstewards, i was all settled into what i was going to
be doing for the next xx years and now this comes along. I am seriously conflicted.

Kids
Advantages
33k (which will probabaly go up)
25 Days paid Holiday
Fairly Flexiable working ours
Seems fairly Stable.

Disadvantages
All the Code is a steaming pile of pooh with no documentation!


Norton Motorcycles
Advantages
Clean Slate for coding, complete new start.
It's Norton (working around motorbikes)

Disadvantages
Like be a paydrop (3k)
only 20 days Holiday
Flexiable Working hours
Longer Commute that Kids

I have the last few weeks been a little unhappy with the code I am inheriting
from the company that built it, and i'd feel bad letting them down by leaving
to go to Norton. Argh, but Norton has more scope for advancement as i said before
I'd be ground level for running the IT Department but its a risk.

I guess the question is if i don't try it would I regret it?

Help!
