It's a big decision - it always is - so you do need to be reasonably sure it's right for you before going ahead.

I have no idea how you earn tax free money legally - most countries try to avoid letting you do that unless you change your name to "Amazon" or "Google" - but money isn't the only factor, honest!
Think about the location: where is it? Does it mean moving town, city, country? Or is it close enough that you can live where you are? What's the commute like? Better or worse than you have at the moment? If it's better, then it's can be worth taking a drop in pay because you save in travel costs, and get extra free time (which is priceless).
What's the new company like? The people? The work? You are going to spend 1/3 of your life with them (and 1/3 sleeping) so there is a good chance that you will be with them more than you are with your SO / friends ...

Don't just push the button for money: it's not worth the stress if you don't like what you are doing, honest!
