I am currently at a company I have been at for 7 years and I get vested into a pension at 10 years. The pension is good but I do not enjoy my work anymore and there is limited to no mobility at my level. I was recently offered a global hrbp role for 30k more than I am making now. I’m not sure what to do! Do I stick out 3 years for the pension or take this new position?

I’d sit and write down my actual loss here. Pension and your peace of mind. Your gains: higher salary, global experience, and hopefully work you’ll enjoy. I agree with the other response, three years is a long time. And since you have some form of retirement option, you wouldn’t be starting from 0. Consider taking the new role, and increasing your 401k contribution or other investments (since you’ll have a higher salary). The money from you pension - you can always make back overtime. Time - once it’s gone, it’s gone. For that reason, I’d take the new opportunity. In the tech space, global experience is highly beneficial. And in three years time, you could be in a position to grow even further in your career.

Do you have a backup plan for retirement? 401k? IRAs? Significant savings and other investments? If so, then I'd consider making the change. If not, then you're probably better off sticking it out.

3 years is a long time. Life is too short to not enjoy what you do. Take the leap.

Thank you! Yes, I do have a 457 deferred comp plan and will role that into a 401k. I wonder how valuable the international hr experience is?

I'm a super practical person, so if it was me, I would stick it out for three more years. That being said, if your mental health is affected at all by being in that role for that organization, the switch might be worth it.

Hard to say, a pension is a safe option. However, if you are young, you can take the risk and start a fund for your retirement.
