making choices - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

well I dont know if this really fits in the employment section but here goes.
For the sake of anonymity I been working as a technician @ company "A" got a job offer @ a very prominent company "B" . My issue is I am not very happy @ "A" . Basically im a overpaid assembler that know has become lazy. Know i am worried that i am going to have to really hard @ company "B".
I really like company "A" it has great people /boss also good work enviroment and i find that hard to find. I dont see company "A" finding a postion i like.

I dont believe i am saying this ( i used to be a hard worker) , but i am not sure what to do. I guess i am worried if my skill are up to par ,or it my be new job butterflies.

Any advice?

So if you stick at Company A, fat, dumb, and happy, what happens in 3 or 4 years when you are laid off because of a change in corporate direction? If you move to Company B, will you learn things and become a better tech?

I would agree with Dave. Also, if you think you are lazy, I guarantee that others see you that way too.
