The discussions are everywhere everyday....
But there is no right or wrong regarding this issue.
An entirely personal decision which is based on:
1) Personal goals
2) Compensation package
3) Attitude towards future
4) Risk profile
5) Number of dependents
6) Desired industry of future work
Every one is entitled to their own decision. Judgement is not of human interpretation. And it doesn't require a judgement to begin with. To take up the offer or not, it is a personal choice.
Life is full of uncertainties. Noone knows if you'll get a fat package and get a great job the next day. Nothing is impossible. You may also stay on and get retrenched with a lousy package another month. Make the choice based on your own situation and risk factor.
Many grumble the existence of choice. Yet, the grumblers are those who complained that they should simply retrench them instead of wasting time forcing leaves onto them. Choice is just a decision process, where you exercise a decision based on your priorities, but holding on to the responsibilities that comes along. It appears that people love to blame on every other thing, than to appreciate a choice of deciding what you want. People rather the environment pass them the death sentence than to pass a death sentence onto themselves. Yet, when glory of success comes by, many take it as a glory resulting of personal wise choice.
Everyone needs positive energy. The fine line defining positive energy and optimistic is often stepped over. It took me a long time to clear that thought. But I do clearly feel that I am filled with positive energy but I'm not-so optimistic with the current reality.
My choice? I'll take.
Reason? Personal goals.
Laidback work life is enjoyable. However good, it is not my cup of tea.
p.s: my word of the day today: burnish (a word that is so.... work! haha!)
