This definitely a good question to consider. Sorry to hear about your department too, Ron.

My department was recently downsized (they used to call it in the early 90's) . I did consider leaving the company before everyone was axed, but it was so darn close to my house, and I loved my co-workers. However, it wasn't too great for my career either. I guess that situation solved itself, before I made my own move.

In any case, I think it's best to go with what you feel is right for yourself and your career. I guess I could've made some decisions in my own career to do consulting for other companies, but I've turned them down because I value being home, and I don't like to travel on business anymore.

I guess in a nutshell, just think of what makes YOU happy and what's good for you, and the decision will be apparent to you.
