Need some advice from the fish... I got an offer from another shop that’s very competitive with my current salary. Same role. Should I take it and run or give my current shop a chance to rebut?

Competitive or +20%? I wouldn’t leave current agency for similar money unless there was a reason to leave a good situation.

New offers risk. But potential great reward. As an old boss once said to me, you probably already made your decision. Be honest with yourself about what it is and act on it

Probably depends most on your experience with current shop. Something motivated you to interview, so agree with CD1 you should examine your instinct and decide accordingly. If you are reasonably satisfied with your current state and foreseeable future there 80% of the time, might be worth staying where you are. If it’s a weekly pep talk to your mirror to cope, the new opportunity might be a better bet.

New shop is less established than the current. Still good work. But maybe less firepower

Only offer your current shop the chance to match /give you a raise if you would actually be ok with staying there. Otherwise make a change

Anyone investing in XRP? I have been. Ray Dalio keeps saying there will be a new world order and a digital currency is among us. The money printer just devalues the dollar more. I’ve moved money into gold, BTC and XRP while lowering my equity position. I still max my ROTH and have a passive VFIAX brokerage on auto invest so I’m still long on equities. I may be biased from working in crypto start-ups and doing some enterprise blockchain work in banking. But I think change is coming. Thoughts?

If there's company you like and the only postings listed are either too senior or too junior is it worth applying still in hopes of getting considered for a more Jr role or negotiating up for a more Sr role? I know it's doesn't hurt to try just wondering if anyone had personal success doing it in industry.
