I recently was offered another job, with a small company, that doesn't have the capital/revenue stream to provide all the perks that my current employer has. Needless to say this small company wants someone to take their system into the modern age, which means re-design/new architecture, implementation, maintenance, team lead, etc.... thus, more experience to add to my resume. These are things that I won't be able to do easily in my current job.
My concern is that it appears this company has really high expectations, and since I had to take a small pay cut to get this position it leaves a but of uneasiness in my stomach for future promotions/advancements. However I believe in their product, their vision/goals, the people and the future of the company.
I feel excited but also scared as its a bit of a gamble. Has anyone else experienced the same thing?"
