In evaluating the offer, you have considered the money they're offering, the quality
of the company and the job itself. It all seems okay to you. No problem. So, why do you still feel uncertain?
It's the people, Stupid.
Few job candidates make the effort to find out whether the rest of the company can
cut the mustard. Remember that no job is isolated. You can't be successful merely by doing a good job at your job.
Your success depends on the people and departments you interact with. If you're in sales, you depend on engineering to design
the product, on manufacturing to produce it, on the quality assurance team to check it over, on the shipping department to
deliver it on time, and on the accounting department to collect payment from the customer.
Have you met, interviewed and assessed the efficacy of all those departments and
people? If you haven't, there's no way to tell whether "it will all work out". At the very least, talk with the key
people and departments that you will interact with daily and weekly.
If you take the job, the money won't make you successful, nor will the company's
reputation or your job description. It's the people, Stupid. (No offense, eh?)
