Drive Off Cliff for Bonus? Or leave money on the table for a new job...
So, I've been working for GC's the last 6 years and have been trying to get over to the development side the last year in a development associate or related role. Last 2 years have been for an Owner Builder developer on the construction side.
I'm coming to the close of a 2 year project and I'm looking at a potential bonus in a $30k range POSSIBLY but uncertain due to being behind schedule and overbudget on current project. We've lost a lot of work, so I'm not sure I will be able to stay with the company unless I move to a different city.
I'm interviewing for a position as a development project manager at a pure developer that isn't owner builder and does all 3rd party GC.
I'm excited for the role but feel that I might have to take a pay cut to get over to the other side and potentially leave my bonus on the table. (right now make about $140k base all in, already looking at construction roles that could pay more but long commutes, bad WLB, not the career track I want to be on)
Should I leave for the money or wait it out and see if I can get the bonus?
