So i got a job offer today. Been through two interviews and a tasting. Then salary negotiations. They offered me a good amount to be the Executive Sous. But the problem is their benefits package compared to what i get now stinks. $1400 a month just in health insurance for the family plan vs my $500.
Since i'm doing corporate my hours are manageable. PLus 1 week vaca vs my 4 weeks(i know i kinda have it good). then there is the 401k. None vs some.
What should i do. I'm seeing more room for growth and opportunity for creativity with the new place, but I'm not single and i love seeing my family. Plus after th deductions it more of a lateral move monetarily. My wife says no matter what i decide she will support me.
Am i being complacent by considering not taking the position... or am i being realistic in wanting a life outside of a kitchen?
As chef and cooks that do you think?
