Would you go for a promotion that pays a bit more, but all the extra pay would be sucked up in petrol costs to get there?
I'm a teacher, looking at second in department jobs. One has come up but its a 30 mile round trip vs current 4 mile (on bike) round trip. That will swallow all the pay rise in petrol money.
No realistic chance of promotion where I am now, and this is the closest 2nd in department job I've seen this year and I'm a bit fed up with the place I'm at now. The other place solves some of my gripes, but I'm sure it will bring up gripes of its own.
