Should I switch jobs if I get a better offer even though I am confortable in my current one?

Nothing wrong with my current company, love it, work is fine. Should I chase the money and go if the offer is better?

    Nothing ventured nothing gained.

    it will feel good to have higher pay although there will be a few months of adjustment and learning period which might make you feel uncomfortable

    but it you get to learn more and also be paid more than why not

    Do you think you deserve to be paid at that level?

    How about just asking for a raise instead? You do have bargaining chips.

      You wouldn't know if the new job will give you yearly raises though. Might even out sooner than you think. Is there a possible promotion on the cards as well?

      Yea promotion is definitely out. Small company, manager is still around, so they won't need another manager unless the current one leaves. As for increment, yea this is tough to figure out. Usually HR will paint a rosy picture of bonuses and increments but I've been tricked twice to know that nothing is guaranteed...but I am asking for a much higher salary to compensate incase there is no bonus or increment
