I need some personal advice about changing jobs. I love my current job. I have a great boss who is very flexible with hours and is very understanding about kid issues. The only issues with the job are that my boss will most likely be changing soon. There is an opening that he could get moved to which would leave him in the office but not as my boss. If things work out logically I will get his second in command as my new boss and I don't think much would change. Then again I work for the government and logic is not usually applied. The other issue is that my current job is a term position. That means that my term is for one year and can be extended up to 5 years. Considering the recent budget cuts it isn't impossible that term employees could be cut to make savings. The term position also means that I can't get put money into the 401K program they have and they have a really good one. I got offered a permanent position in an office across post. I interviewed and liked the people but I am aprehensive about it for some reason. Probably because change is scary and the timing is just horrible for my current boss. Also because my current boss has requested I be moved to a permanent position already and they are now attempting to jump through hoops to keep me here. But there are no guarantees they can make it work. If I look at this logically I should go ahead and take the other job. It has promotion potential which I don't have here. It has access to benefits and 401K. It's closer to my house. There is a Starbucks in the building. (OK so thats just a huge smilemaker for me). But what if I get an ass for a boss? If I look at it from a personal level I will truly miss the people I work with here. My heart is in this job right now. They are doing everything they can to make this work and get me on permanent. They have given me two bonuses in less than a year. Something that has only happened once in the last 6 years before coming here. What should I do? Logic or Heart.
