Not sure about a decision you are about to make?  A pro/con list can help you dive into more detail and really explore if a decision is right for you. Pro-cons are best when you just have 1 decision in front of you.

  •  Opportunities for long term advancement
  • Salary $5k more than I wanted
  • Team members are supportive

Cons - the potential negative outcomes of the decision

  • Workload would be heavy - long work weeks? 
  • Boss may be a micro-manager
