New Job!

I went with option #1 from my previous post. Just to clarify, this is a job in the legal industry. The majority of my co-workers are lawyers. It's just not a job at a law firm.

I negotiated for the first time in regards to my salary. They really lowballed me initially, but I don't think it was intentional, I think it was them being scatterbrained.

I'll be getting:

  • $6k more (which translates to approximately $280/mo)
  • Commission
  • Fully paid health benefits
  • 401k with matching
  • 4 weeks PTO
I'll be back in a skyscraper. I'll have to start dressing in suits again. I like the owners, but I'm not sure about some of my other co-workers.

To be totally honest? I'm scared and a little sad. I've bitched and moaned about my current job, but I have really lovely co-workers, and I'll miss them. Also, I knew my job like the back of my hand. That's all about to change.

As far as taking the bar... I haven't decided yet. I'll make up my mind in the next week.

But for right now - I'm breaking out the champagne. :)

6K is a huge increase. I think you'll be happy in the long run that you didn't go for the long commute. That can really drain the life out of you. Congrats!

Congratulations!! I think starting a new job is always a little scary, especially when you're leaving a job you were really comfortable in. But it DOES get easier! Good luck :)
