This means they are asking you to sacrifice your seniority with your current employer, as well as any valuable/hard-to-replace business knowledge you may have.
Do you have or want ownership in the startup?
How is each company doing financially? Are their customers paying their bills? How's the stock doing on the larger company?
Has either company had layoffs in the past 3 years?
If I had a good job at a company doing work I liked, I could care less if I was physically at the building.
Tread carefully! Bird-in-hand and all that.

I need some guidance regarding my career.
Currently I work for a company developing wireless applications using J2ME & Wap/WML. I use Servlets/JSP for server-side apps. My company is in another city so I work from home. I have been working for this company for the last one year and this is my first job.I do like my work and I think my employers are happy with my work. But I don't really like working from home.
Right now I am also being offered a job from a local company. Work will be related to web development using Servlets/JSP. This company is going to pay me *same* salary as my old company. There is also going to be a probation period of around 3 months. If I take up this offer I will have to leave my current job. There is no way I can make it part-time. My current company is just a startup, but this company is firmly established.
So what should I do. I'm pretty confused. Entering the local market is tough. Someone helped me get an interview and I got selected. So opportunity does not frequently knock at the door. On the other hand I fear that if they throw me out after the probation period, then I will get in to big trouble. I have to take a tough decision. :roll:
