Time to move on?

I will soon be forced into a career decision. I believe I will get an offer from a network security company this week. They are a very solid post-startup/pre-IPO company. They command great market share in the industry and they are seeking my expertise in the introduction and support of their security product. The question now is - do I take the position?

Pros of taking the position:
Change of pace
New learning of product
Career enhancement - something that I asked for, but did not receive in my current company
This company will IPO - $$$

Cons of taking the position:
New turf
New relationships to build
Leaving my comfort zone
Leaving a company that I spent almost 5 years with

Assuming that I get a competitive package, I think it is time for me to leave. We'll see what happens in the next few days.

 

Plano, Texas this week

Going to be in Plano, Texas this week. It's about 20-30 minutes north of the Dallas-Fort Worth Area. Got a little work to do there, but there's nothing too important. Going to eat at the Brazillian steak house - mmm good!

Halloween Ruled!!!

Halloween was so awesome this year. I had a few parties to go to on Saturday. I ended up going to Judd's place before I went to the bar across the street. They were supposed to have a costume contest, but it was taking too long so I left. I later went to Mission Ale House to meet up with some co-workers and my old SCU friends.



On Monday night, we went to Studio 8 in San Jose. I was like a walking celebrity in my Stewie costume. I was being stopped every 5 minutes to get my picture taken.

Only 360 days to get my Halloween 2006 costume ready. Stewie is going to be tough to beat.

Baseball Geek: 3 Nights in August

I haven't posted in a while, but I thought I'd drop a quick line. I've been reading Three Nights in August. It's a story of a 3 game series between the Cards & Cubs in 2003. It talks about the preparation, strategy and behind the scenes of a baseball series. Awesome book! I highly recommend for the baseball geek.

Only 3 more months until Spring Training begins!
