I've been lurking for a while and have found some solid advice on this forum. I'm hoping that others out there may have faced what I am now.
I have an opportunity to take a position that is a move up the ladder, but there is no increase in pay and it would require me to relocate my family (w/ 3 small children, one in school). We would still be fairly close to my wife's family (about a 6 hour drive). I've been at my current location for about 5 years and there isn't much opportunity to move up. Moving up to the next level still would not give me supervisory experience (which is required to move up to management). I think I've been "pigeon holed" to some extent, but the pay is good and the benefits are excellent.
My question is, is it worth it to uproot and take the position in order to move forward in my career? In experience, is it often necessary for a planner to relocate in order to find opportunity? Is being a manager more headache than it's worth? Thanks for any input on thes and any other related questions.
