Still wondering if I did the right thing.

1. You'll never know.

2. Taking a job with a troubled company is likely to lead to a new job search in the near future.

I once had an interview with a chip maker that was in a bad way. Not so much "one foot in the grave", more like "both feet in the grave, let me help you shovel that dirt." It would have been all the good things one looks for in a job (more money, more prestige, better benefits, etc.) but I passed on the offer. They're now out of business.

Regards,
