Why do I feel so guilty about wanting to take another offer and leaving my team? I like my current teammates just HATE the client and project.

I want to take the money but I feel like I’m still learning leaderships skills and can see the potential for beefing out the management portion of my resume. What would you do? (Offer 50% more)
