Comparison is the thief of joy

I know. And I always try to be happy for people when they tell me about their opportunities. But deep down I'm always a bit envious and can't help but to compare my own situation to theirs.

What does your friend do? PA does suck, but we’re just all grinding it out till we jump into industry and get our own lil nice bump!

That's true. For me the upside of PA has always been the absolute diversity and dynamic in everyday life. Work can be boring sometimes sure but maybe next week you'll get put on an engagement with someone you really like and that'll make it more bearable. Also, as someone who has worked in industry before and hated everyone they worked with, I find the possibility of switching teams on an almost weekly basis to be amazing.

Imagine you're looking for a remote job at a large company with a sophisticated marketing function, strong manager, and room for growth. Making good traction, but then you're contacted by a company in a niche that FASCINATES you...like you read books about this subject for fun, you'd probably love this job. It's remote, the salary is good, the manager is nice, but you'd be the most senior marketing person; the company is about 200 people. What would you do?
