I have a wonderful job. I've been here just over a year and I love everything about it really.
I've been offered an even better one. Double the salary, more than double in benefits (cost to benefit ratio), greater career prestige (big name company), and still a wonderful work environment (maybe even better than what I do now).
I'm conflicted because I love this company and my co-workers but I do want the benefits and excitement of the new opportunity. I'm a senior developer here and they do need me, but I'm obviously not irreplaceable.
In short, I'm feeling torn between a sense of loyalty to this good company and my personal career goals.
I guess my question is how can I avoid burning bridges and is this an acceptable reason to leave?
