My husband has been with the same company for almost 10 years. He started on staff level, and worked hard to achieve a high rank in the company. However, the needs in the family is also growing, so, we needed to look for better options. This new company has so much to offer in terms of financial rewards, so he applied for the job and got it. He felt bad that he had to leave his long time employer, where he grew to be a good manager and leader. But, right now, what's important is to provide for the family's needs, and he just has to take the next step.

I completely understand your boss, recently I broke the news of tendering my resignation to my boss. I was one of the 3 pioneers of this small firm, he said that we started it out and now I'm leaving them. How can I not leave them when my salary is not even in the minimum range plus the fact that I'm doing all around job except for the production? I want a new environment, a new boss and a new salary, I am still single but I can't even give my self a decent life so I decided I need to take a chance on other jobs even if I'm old enough. I will study a short course for free first before applying to be equipped.

That's right. If you are no longer happy, for whatsoever reason, in your current job, then that's THE sign that you need to go look for other options. It's not healthy for you to get stuck in wilderness.

Exactly, hi tries to persuade me not to resign but not full effort. I can't tell him what exactly I hate and I want, for me I want a new job, a new environment, a new salary and benefits and a new boss.

Go for it! You can't be as productive if you're not happy with your employment terms and environment. Rather than having ill feelings about your current job and boss, get a new one and be happier.

that 1o years staying in a work is really a blessing for me,because in 10 years you have stable work for your family but because of the call of needs like what your husband had,he needs to choose to go to the next step to provide all needs of his family and that will everyone do for sure in the name of their family.

Yes, and I know it was not an easy step for him. He had learned so much and found fulfillment in that previous job, but he has to turn his back from it because we needed the financial offer that the other company can give.

Jurea, it is good to hear your husband finally able to find a much better offer job. Sometimes due to financial problem, we needs to go for a much better offer. Although we may feels sad that we have to leave our long time employer at some point of our life but we should think for our future, too. Have your husband try asking for better pay before leaving his long time employer? Some boss willing to increase their staff pay due to want to continue keeping them to work for them. Anyway, congratulation to you for your husband's success in getting a much better offer job.

When he talked to his boss about it, he was given a counteroffer which was also good, but the new offer is much more enticing. Even if he gets promoted in his current company, the pay would still not be comparable to the new offer for a lateral move. There's just much to look forward to in the new company. We're both excited, and he's going to start next month. Wish us luck!
