Dilemma Time

As I last posted, I am in the midst of a job change. I have been presented with two job offers that I need to respond to in the next couple days. I am putting this out to the loyal fans of the Metro DC Sewer. Which one should I take?

The Facts:

Job #1: offered the most money by a large margin (like $15K more), is a job that has less job security, seemed to me to be boring, middle level defense contractor, the pay is a huge raise but the actual work is essentially a demotion (weird dichotomy), no chance at bonuses or other means of raising my income, work a regular 40 hour week

Job #2: offered less money but still substantially more than the Government pays me, at an elite defense contractor, real chance for career growth, bonuses (large I've heard, like 10's of thousands of dollars), performance review/raise in 6 months, work that will be challenging but will probably require some long hours every so often

So it is essentially Job #1's superior pay versus Job #2's superior work/work environment. What should I do?! I've been puzzling over this the last two days. I am leaning towards Job #2, but that money is really enticing.

I think you just really wnat people to encourage you to do the Job#2 thing so you'll feel better about giving up the cash.

Do it.

Job #2 sounds amazing.

It's hard to say no to more money, but I am definitely leaning to #2.

Job #2. First of all, money does NOT equal job satisfaction. Second, Job #2 sounds like it has some upward mobility, which should (theoretically) mean more money in the longrun. Job #2 is more of an investment, but it sounds like a good one.
