Obviously I’m not going to let some people I’ve never met make a life-altering decision for me, but I figured posting about this might at least help me structure my thinking process a little better. Also I’d be the first to admit that I am probably notorious for asking for advice and not taking it. I apologise if you’ve ever been the advice-giver and it’s seemed like I’ve ignored your advice. I never ignore advice as such, I merely consider it and apply it to my overall thinking process, and usually end up doing what my gut tells me.
I do appreciate advice though. It helps inform my final decision.
What I’m saying is - I’m not asking you to tell me what I should do. I’m asking you to give me your opinion so that I can apply it to my own thinking.
So here’s what this is about -
I’ve been offered a choice -
Work until the end of June and then take a 16 week pay redundancy package.
Work until the end of June, then from June onwards take an altered role at reduced pay and lose the title ‘Manager’.
I don’t yet know what the reduction will be.
I need to make a decision tomorrow.
I’ve had few jobs in my life so I am not very experienced at being in this situation.
