I'm working as a full stack developer joined marely 7 months ago(I have good performance & experience as freelance developer - more than 3 years, But had to join as fresher due to "conventions") in a small scale company. Due to some management issues, most of my seniors have resigned from the job. One senior who was handling most of the work for the company's dream project is also on notice.
Now as the company is about to have its market establishment(Already have had initial funding). There's basically no worthy one who can act as right hand of the CEO. The CEO has offered me to lead this project & make sure that everything goes well.
The reason previous senior who was doing all this has left is the requirements change suddenly. He often has to work on weekends & push more than 9 hours a day. However, this looks like an opportunity it has some hard requirements. I was thinking to leave the company as the pay scale is moderate & I already have received better offers.
The proposal given to me was totally verbal & no benefits were mentioned. I have to get an answer tomorrow. If I deny this might lead me to face unintended situation in the company. Please give me an advice.
Edit The proposal includes a commitment to lead the project till atleast 1 year.
