First non contract job?

I find myself at an impasse. Two job offers on the table, one for less money with a smaller company that seems really fun and interesting and would build me a fine set of experiences in entry level development. Or be a NOC Zombie in a fresh start up initiative for more money than I've ever made with high possibility of advancement.I find myself at an impasse.

Both give full and impressive benefits and are close enough to my home that I could spit on them. So it may be time to flip a coin, go with the money, or go with the interesting experience.

If it was me, I would go with the fun and interesting job.

I'm content with living within my means and having a modest lifestyle. Money isn't as important at the moment because I'm still living at home. I guess it depends on your values/plans for the future.

I desperately crave some mental stimulation or challenge from my work rather than the endless SOE installs and fixing the same IT support issues day in, day out.

All the best.
