This or That?

Guys, I am having some major difficulty making a decision on this, but I think I've made up my mind. This poll will help me understand if I'm being ridiculous.

Job 1 (Current job)
1. Been doing essentially the same job, but an expanded role in that same job 5 years. Been promoted within the job/organization twice.
2. Fun/sales environment at times, but high pressure and what I consider bad management and a hostile environment at times.
3. 5 minutes from home (2 miles), dedicated parking spot in the garage.
4. Great money, lots of contacts, know the organization well, and I think I'm well respected.
5. Group has potential to be restructured, or dissolve in 2 years. I am in analytics, so they would probably find another spot for me even if this happened.
6. Salary, plus 22% of base bonus structure. I have received my full bonus every year I have been there, so that is money in the bank.
7. 3 weeks paid vacation
8. I am Jaded with the job/frustrated with my team.

Job 2: Offer on the table (Transfer within the umbrella of companies)
1. Great base salary (better than job 1), but less bonus/incentives. This causes the money to be a wash, but this job DOES have a better base. I know it's always good to increase your base if possible.
2. Prospect (but not guarantee) of a better situation. Seems good, but you the devil you know...
3. Starting off completely fresh.
4. Similar type job, but completely different side of the business, so I will learn something new.
5. Lateral move in terms of rank.
6. Awful commute. If driving, 36 miles round trip and awful traffic. I mean really bad.
7. Public transportation is an option, but will take at least 1 hour each way and includes a 0.5 mile walk no matter what I do. Also would include a 7 mile drive to a train/bus station to catch the train.
8. Management seems great.
9. Between gas/parking/wear and tear, driving would cost $4000/year.
10. 3 weeks paid vacation

What do you think? These are just the things most important to me. There might be other factors.

seems good to lean something new but how much potential in job2? sounds like you'll have more expenditures and less income. unless this sets you up for the next jump in rank that is.

do whatever will make you happier in the end. What's the point of doing something if you don't enjoy it?

I'd say from what you've said, stay with job 1. Moving sucks anyways. Best to stick with what you know you're good at, and since you've been promoted twice it sounds like you're pretty good.

Or just quit and start slanging drugs. As a backup plan, you know.

Haha...Good advice.

I often wonder if the grass is greener, but then remember work is work. Yes, Job 2 could be better, but it is still work. In the end, if it's not significantly more money, why even bother? The second job might have a few better aspects, but probably some worse too...some of which already include the commute and the expense.
