Should i Move

By ryan-neil ·
I am with one of the big three Software companies 6 months now, i am working in IT Support on the phones and have been offered a promotion, but would have to move, is this worth it, obviously better money etc, but would you view this as a move up or a move laterally, from 35man support team to a 5 man IT Dept Team, all in 6 months.

a lot depends on what you will be doing in the 5 man IT shop. sometimes smaller shops are better because you get to do much more advanced stuff (security, auditing, project mgtm) while in larger shops jobs are sometimes more segmented and defined.

You don't

deserve to go if you can't even do your own home work and then give your reasoning with the pros and cons. Based on your original question I feel you are not ready to manage a department. If you can't take my criticism you certainly aren't ready for management.

Where are you located now and where might you move to? What wages? How much of a commute? How much stress? Why do they now need a new body there?
