  • Mood:

i am worth it

I just got half of the written offer from the "C" subsidiary headquartered in Edinburgh.

You guys. They are offering me twice what I was earning at the job I just left. It's four times the Shenzhen median salary. I could live comfortably in the west on just the base pay.

21 days annual leave. If that does not include public holidays i will cry tears of joy, but since China has 11 public holidays it sounds suspiciously like only 2 weeks. Still, 3 weeks a year you can work from any of the other offices around the world. They support work from home. Basic health and dental. 10% annual bonus. A stupidly high company bonus, if we hit some ambitious revenue thresholds.

I have my pick of two departments in Shenzhen. I spoke to the head of one today. He wants me to be a team lead.

I am currently one day into a trial work/take home project for the "N" subsidiary whose engineers are all located in Seattle and Atlanta. I can't see myself giving it too much thought.

Even if this place is mediocre, the pay should make the pill easier to swallow.

The skies just opened up in the first big thunderstorm of the year. The streets are washed clean.

I am watching Jesus: His Life and just got to the part where John baptizes Jesus.

It's time for a (nother) new start.
