You should stick with the present job. You are almost a CEO there.....very important to the company. You got good advice from those above. I'll add this.... don't be carried away by the term 'multinational'...their main and only aim is to make and keep increasing profits at all costs. You can be let go at any moment....so don't even be banking on retirement...before you can blink... these companies can shut down and flee with all your retirements and whatever else they promised to keep you loyal and dedicated.

Thank you very much for your candid advise... I pray God leads me to make the right choice

You are a big liar.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
There is no job security unless you are employed by Nigerian Government.
You can only be sacked or retired before 35 years due to fraud and new unfriendly Govt.
Moreover, there are no jobs let alone 3 different companies inviting you for interview within 1 week.
Even if you are a specialist.
Oil, Banks, telecom companies, are downsizing and you are talking this... chai!!!
If you don't believe this then I am confident you don't believe in God. No disrespect intended

OP, my advice for you is that you stay with your current employer, under him you will learn a lot of skills to apply when you are ready for your own business.

Who knows, you may become managing director in that company when things get better grin

You are very on point like a decimal with your comment. I have my fears of staying with this firm in Abeokuta... Just praying I don't make a mistake eventually

They have all spoken well, but i never believed in a one man business. What are your growth prospects? If your boss wakes up on the wrong side of the bed can he just fire you? A standard multinational will have structures that don't leave your fate in the whims of one man. 13th month is usually 10% or so of your basic. You also talked about pensions which means your employer is contributing at least 15% of some of your pay for your future use. Finally, your next employer will rate you higher if you are coming from a multinational than if you were coming from an unknown company.

Do not look at the short term, focus on the long term. The multinational won't include trainings in their offer but you will definitely get those. The Abeokuta job appears appealing but if I were to be in your shoes, i will take the multinational. It is easier to get another job in Lagos than it is from ab.

I was in the same dilemma when a telco and a bank offered me jobs. The telco was more one man but paid better. I chose the bank for the singular reason I could move around better with the bank name and experience. Today i am happy I did. The name on my CV still wrought magic. The choice is yours to make, pray and be led by divine direction. I wish you well.
Honestly you have elevated me. Your reasoning is deep and I appreciate it. I may send you a personal message please. Thank you for this. This was the exact same statement a friend of mine made yesterday. Thank you once again

@OP, Your story is quite similar to mine.

i actually took half my salary to join an MNC for growth purposes only to get the shocker of my life.
I met harsher Job conditions, longer hours, stress, traffic, rude colleagues, career stagnation and worst of all financial struggle which I never faced at my former work place where I was earning double. Even at my former job I had offers to double the double coming from mid size firms which I rejected despite their pleas. Today, i am filled with regrets everyday I go to work but cant quit because im stuck .

Moral of the story is that the grass is always greener on the other side.
Stay in Abeokuta till the right offer comes. The Lagos job is not the right offer for now.

wow this is shocking. A friend of mine works in a similar position in the company and has spoken to me positively from experience

[quote author=lastpage post=47515934]

These are my priorities

1.) Job Security and stability ( No emergency sacking like in the Civil Service)?
2.) Self development (lie working for an audit firm like Accenture, where you probably will undergo training and certifications almost every year)?
3.) Money ( High Income, emoluments) ?
4.) Prestige (like in working for a bank or Oil company?)
5.) Future looking ( some jobs develop you to become a Leader in the future)

[quote author=victree007 post=47532116][/quote] dude.
First; there is nothing like job security anywhere. You can be laid off anytime- Nigerian civil service is a bit fair in this regards. Any other company is a risk. The shareholders are all out to make money.
Second; I guess you meant career development not self development. Apparently, you do not know what industry you fit and you want. You mentioned accenture, bank, oil and gas. Every company/individual that envisages growth put up for trainings at sometime. If your background can allow you work in different industries, good for you. I mean if you studied courses like finance, human resource et all. You studied geology, why don't you align your career expectations in line with that. In a short time, you may be referred for jobs that are high paying in/outside the country.
On a final note, if the contract with MNC is being offered through a recruitment/manpower company, pls don't accept it. You will not get whatever benefits you have put up there and your sack is imminent once they think you are no longer productive. I don't want to believe this story is fake and you are just living in delusion.

Op, even if your house is opposite your office in Lagos,it will still be more stressful than working in Abeokuta. I live in neither cities but I can bet my right eye that Abeokuta is better.
