I have an unusual situation here that I've never seen before. I could use help with suggestions or things to consider.
A company has identified me as their 'perfect' candidate for a new role in their organization. This position has never existed before. Yesterday I interviewed with two VPs and the CEO and discovered that they're pretty much right. I've seen their exact situation before, I know the industry and I've done this work in the past.
Which is a problem. The role is fairly technical and I've expressed concerns to them that it doesn't represent career growth for me...their response "OK, tell us what you'd like to do."
I've been moving and this is really the first chance I've had to stop and think. I'm somewhat in shock. I've told them I have to think this through, but suggested that if several subordinate engineers could be placed under this role and make it more of a management position, we might have something. They are open to this. In a way, I'm going to make an offer to them, probably tomorrow evening. The issue will combine a fairly technical role with management of junior engineer working on elements related to the technical side of my role.
So - what else should I be thinking about?
