Have a feeling that you are not recognised for your efforts in your project, doing reduntant work that doesn't challenge your skills, good percentage of hike from your present salary coupled with onsite chances, work also seems to be much more interesting there...
Good brand name, pay and onsite..actually regarding work we cannot say anything because what if the work there,even though it is interesting, is much worse than your present one? will you again shift back to your previous employer..?

Well then you get the extra money for doing the same thing.. Of course work completely depends on the projects you are put in... I was quoting an example like say you were in support for a while and was fed up with it and the other company offers you a chance in development [ September 13, 2006: Message edited by: James Wenchen ]
I think if you've been in the same place all your working life, you don't have the same breadth of experience as you would if you'd moved a couple of times. I decided to make the move after 5 years in my first job, even though the job itself was fine. I think it really helps to work with different sets of people (who have different experience) & for different companies (who have different standards). Obviously this can be taken too far - your cv isn't going to look good if you constantly move round every 6 moths - what belief will a new employer have that you're going to stick around & pay off any training etc they invest in you if you haven't before. Also after you've worked in a handful of places, you've probably seen enough of a range of environments to be able to make experienced judgement calls as appropriate.
less than 3 years exp => salary, brand name, better technology, onsite opportunity, my friend is going there 3-6 years exp => core technology, family reason, more responsibility, better job role 6+ year exp => change of lifestyle [no long hours], want to be boss in small co rather than run of the mill in large co
Usually switching every 3-4 years is considered good in the industry.
