Oh, great and powerful Chef Talk Forum... I once again turn to my peers for some advice. I am considering two job offers. The one job offers a good salary, great company culture and support and very good advancement. The benefits are so-so, not great. The potential for exponential increase in salary is very good. It would also be good professional challenge with the possibility of gaining certifications. The other job is with an excellent company. The benefits are excellent... matching 401k, company pension after a year, vacation, discounts, insurance that starts right away. The salary starts at about $7,000 less than the other job. The potential for growth is limited. Not a very clear path for any kind of advancement. The position offered is kind of the top position already. Not too much of a professional challenge. About me... I'm 48, 25+ years in food service. I'm not a spring chicken. Just looking for visceral responses from my fellow chefs. Thanks.
