Today is my one year anniversary working for my new company. When I made the decision to change jobs I was a bit nervous. The new place really sounded too good to be true and I am not a grass is greener type of a guy. I am very loyal as well, and my old company, while on the decline, actually treated me very good. But after a year I have found that this place really is as great as it seemed and I am very happy here. I miss the people that I used to work with, but I still keep in touch with them. So overall I am very glad that I made the move and I think it was the right move for my career.  It is nice working for a company that is doing well and staffs the DBA position appropriately. I am busy but not overwhelmed and I get the chance to play with some emerging technology as well as be a lot more proactive then I have ever been before. So I guess what I am saying, is if the opportunity comes up and it looks like a good move, do not let loyalty to a company hold you back. I almost did but I know that the company would not have been as loyal to me if they needed to make cuts.
