I've been in my current role for almost 6 years with the company and been with the company for 8 years in total. Overall they've been very good to me, given me opportunity to travel the world and have been pretty decent with raises (even paid for me to get my masters degree). I get along great with my boss, we've argued from time to time but it's been productive.
I found out back in October that corporate (which sits in Europe) is going to be consolidating my function (not all of it, but most of it) to Eastern Europe. This bothers me as I feel that whoever is left is going to have to pick up the pieces (goal is to have 1-2 people still in place) to this satellite group who doesn't care about the facility that I work in. I'm not sure my job will be present in 2 years and with this consolidation the chance for advancement, from what I see, is small. I've tried to ask around to see what is going to happen but I haven't received very much information as corporate is holding the answers close to the vest. Furthermore, we recently initiated an early retirement for people at the facility I work at, almost half of my team falls into this and most will take it so the team will be reduced prior to my announcement of leaving.
I've recently been offered a similar position at another company for more money, I'm very interested in this position, but again feel bad for abandoning my team and my boss who I know depends on me to lead my smaller team through this transition, but I've also got to look out for myself.
I'm fairly certain I'll accept the new position as I have to look out for myself, but I'm looking for some feedback as I still feel wrong about looking & accepting a new position given the current state of my team & facility. I know my boss is not going to be happy, but I really don't know what else to do given the current situation.
