I find it interesting that not one person cared about the repayment of the sign on. It's burning a hole in my decision process, although I'm not sure why since the salary bump would cover the whole thing in under a year.

Happiness is worth the bonus. Plus, the salary bump would cover the cost. Go for the new job. Exciting!

I just submitted my vote, it's crazy how it's 17-0 at this point for DC.

Remember the sample set here, though - this is a poll of a bunch of people that are all about to pick up and move across the country (in most cases, anyway) for a completely new experience and the promise of something more rewarding in the short and long term. I would expect most people here to vote for DC.

When are you landing? :)

I can always be convinced to come back for a drink.

When are you moving, by the way?

I am too late in here. I would also vote for DC. Regarding the bonus, well, I am paying back the full tuition and 20 months of living expenses to my old company. This is huge money now; nevertheless, as we live just once I am willing to take this risk. I probably am more risk taker than you, and I would not suggest you to follow my decision path, but reading what you posted I could not forget the Managing in Organizations class we took together: you were convincing yourself regarding your decision, it was already made when you came here. :-D

Let's celebrate grabbing a couple of beers this week or next if you are available.

Maybe I can swing back for it.... but I'll be starting the new job in June.
