I tried to get into doing just that with my company, no dice so far… I am not easily dissuaded though so I will continue to press.
The other thing I have been concerned about is the stability of the market. There has been a slow increase but I still have many friends sitting at the house and I would like to not end up in that boat (pun intended). The pay cuts, the talk of going back to 28/14 and more cuts (unsubstantiated rumors), and the rest is discouraging at best. I do know that the grass is rarely greener on the other side or at least not as green as it appears from across the fence.
I appreciate the advice and will be taking it.
