Long-time listener, first time posting …
Has the topic of Manager Relocation come up yet?
From 2001 through 2005, I had been working with a company located in Irvine, California as a traveling sales, then training manager. I was located in Atlanta, Georgia and though I spent a few weeks now and then in Irvine I was not relocated there. The company was due to be acquired in 2005 and rather than facing the likely prospect of relocating I took a position with another company rather than relocate. (For many reasons but mostly the cost of living comparing Atlanta to Irvine.)
Now I cant say I have been entirely pleased with the current job but it has it good points. However the manager I had at my old company has come calling and wants me back. It does involve relocating and I am thinking this may be a second chance. I met with him and Human Resources in Irvine a few days ago and we talked over a few points and I am awaiting a proper offer.
I would appreciate anyone’s thoughts on relocating for a position including salary, time lines, selling of my current home and such. Thanks
