When Experience Overcomes Compensation

I must be getting old. Or maybe I'm just finally in a good place career-wise. At any rate, I did a very interesting thing today. I turned down an offer that would have increased my base pay by 20-25%, would have gotten me a security clearance, and would have given me entry into the wonderful world of federal sector contracting. Therein lies the rub, of course.

So, it's bye-bye new opportunities, hello double-down. I've re-committed myself to my current employer and now eagerly anticipate the return of my project manager in February to take that load back, freeing me to go do interesting things. W00t!
