I've got a job offer with a biotech company thats basically a start up. It has about 15 employees and has been around for 5 or so years. It has one medical product in phase 3 trails and developement plans for several similar products. They're just now expanding and making their own parts, which is the job I would have, some production and some R&D. They used to buy certain parts from the only supplier they could find, but they just bought out the supplier. The main engineer of the supplier is retiring and will still be around for consulting. He was the only engineer working there, they had a couple operators though who were fired (They're moving the equipment from the east coast to the west). The company is currently funded by one very rich individual. Obviously this is a fairly risky job as far as job security is concerned.

Right now I have a very secure job, but I find it boring. The job offer is in an area I have previous research experience in and I think I would find the job more rewarding. The location is slightly better too. Its only an hour away from where I live now so I could commute for the time being. I think I will take the job because my current job satisfaction is so extraordinarily low and has been so for about a year, its not going to get better, but if you have any similar experience, I'd like to hear about it.
