MSP vs Corporate??
I work for an MSP, long hours, 0 down time, but it's fun and we always work with the latest and greatest technologies. I recently accepted an offer to work for a very large insurance company, joining the IT management team, after going through their 2 - 3 year leadership development program. I work mostly with Microsoft server OS and VMware, and some Cisco stuff here and there. When I gave my notice at the MSP, a couple days later they came back and offered a $15k salary increase to stay. I'm still young, mid 20's and I'm looking for some advice from people with experience. Stay where I'm at and make a lot more money, or join the corporate world and have the potential to make a lot more money down the road (I think). I also have no idea what to expect for salary (besides starting), raises, bonuses and what not at the insurance company either. Any advice is appreciated.
