Re: Oh why don't they ever offer me money
I got the same offer once - they wanted me to jump ship and go and work for them (our competitor) and were offering a lot of money ... I thought about it but turned them down. The problem is that once you do something like that then it will follow you for the rest of your life and they will never trust you because they know that you can be turned for the right amount.
And you know how people talk in this business ... the story will get out and you'll need to find a new career. I'm not claiming to be honest - I was tempted, but I wasn't about to get stupid.
