Currently working as a Relationship Banker. Haven’t had no complaints with how Chase has handled the pandemic from the consumer banking side. Recently I was asked if I was interested in a Financial solutions advisor role at Bank of America. Things have slowly began to pick up at our branch and while I would like to continue my career at Chase. The bump in base salary increases as well as the earning potential. Any advice on how to make a decision? Things to consider besides pay?

Was offered a huge raise to go to a company that is 3 days a week in office and probably busier than my current job with not as good of benefits (still great).

Current job is very chill, and fully remote.. they countered to match the new salary and total comp.

I chose the new job, hoping the opportunities will push me further along in my career. Also need some discipline of going into the office vs sitting in my sweatpants all day at home.

hopefully I made the right decision 🙏
