QA4: Should I Take This $28K Pay Increase?

This week in PaychecksAndBalances Q&A:

What’s up fellas, congrats on the new pod. You guys have helped me make some great moves in advancing my career. So thank you for that. I am currently working in a bank, and through networking got an interview with a top financial advisory firm. Everything seems to be a go, the move would lead to a $28k bump up in base salary. The only issue I may have is the assets under management goals that have to be hit each month after my 7th month on the job. My question is does a move like this make sense even with the targets i am expected to hit. Worst case is I make the base plus whatever commissions and go elsewhere or I actually hit all the targets and stay. What are your thoughts?
