It sounds like they are offering you the golden handcuffs. If other employees there get wind of you receiving a substantial pay offer, then there could be trouble as they try to lay a claim for similar treatment (especially if many of them become disgruntled more than they already are).

I would still take up the offer of the new job. True, that would be more commuting for you but that would only be temporary until you move in July. In the meantime, you might be able to locate a place to live that is closer to the new job (and therefore incurring less travel) than you are currently having to contend with between where you currently live and your present job.

In theory none of my peers would need to know about my pay raise at the current position. Only my boss, HR, and accounting/payroll.

Regardless of the new offer I was getting a raise (or so my boss told me). So that is kind of a moo (like a cow) point.

But the I-4 can be a real mess during rush hours. I would try one day at the hours you would be commuting. I bet it will take you 2 hours.

A few questions I would ask myself it were me:

Will my current company still be in business in 5 years? How about 10?
Is my current company in a healthy, growing industry or a dying one?

Then I'd ask the same questions about the new place.
