Head is being hunted

Been contacted several times by a very persistent headhunter... Apparently there is some interest in me for heading up the european branch of professional services for a major networking company.

Decisions decisions..... If they double my pay they can get me

They're offering about 60% more. Health insurance, pension plan, company car an all that good extra stuff is on par with my current employer.

Wouldn't have to move as I would be leading a team dispersed all over Europe, Middle East and Africa, meaning 30% travel and the rest working from home.

Job security looks OK, but when can you really be secure about a job ? For all I know my current employer could fire me tomorrow... Let's just say it's a very secure company in the networking sector, one that's not about to go away any time soon.

Stock option package is Yummy, more than enough to offset the stock options I have to leave behind at Cisco...

On the other hand, it would be a step down from Cisco, and Cisco is poised to profit handsomely from Internet 2.0 throug their Scientific Atlanta purchase...

I have an 8-year reputation in Cisco and ties to all the major players in the company...Not sure if I want to start from scratch again.

Although it would be a challenge to do something completely new..

Having a hard time coming to a decision...

60% more pay VS 8yrs with the company you're with now? Hmmmmm. I'd stay with what you got. Like you said, networking isn't going away anytime soon.

tell your current employer that you are being sought after by another company. Give them the chance to make your current situation better. Maybe they won't match it but if they can get you closer then you'd make more and keep all your current perks.

Yes...that's also what I was thinking. Have seen too many "old-timers" being asked to train a rookie, only then to be replaced by the younger (and cheaper) rookie....

I'm between a rock and a hard place.....

ok, so what....so they fire you. You already have a new job lined up. That would be pretty shitty of them to fire him for looking at other employment. If that's the kind of company is Cisco is then you don't want to work for them anyway.....?????

IF they give you a corporate motorcycle along with the corporate car you should take it.

So you give them a time frame to act. Don't play games with the fuckers and don't let them play you. MAKE the deal happen your way. The ball is in your court.

True! :imwst I trained 3 of my managers, yet i was never good enough for that position :gun In my company it was all about who you knew and not talent. If you seen this going on in your company 04R1belgium then it might happen to you too. I would go where the money was, but thats just me. Can the other company offer you a higher position/title? At least this way if something happens, it would look more impressive on your resume.
