Iím very happy with my lot and not at all bitter, thanks. A major factor in that was my personal choice to try and prioritise life outside of work. I love what I do for a living, but blindly prioritising it above all else didnít make me happy. Thus, if I found myself in the original posterís position I would take the ATR job, but thatís very much personal preference.

I take exception to the assumptions you made in your post. Having worked extremely hard in the early part of my career has led me to where I am today, and affords me the life experience to share what I learnt. Doesnít mean itís right for everyone, but I certainly donít sit in a gold plated castle offering my opinions to the Ďlittle peopleí at the beginning of their careers.

To the OP; my turboprop flying was by far and away the most fun and rewarding in my career. The Airbus is a pleasant working environment, but the Ďfuní factor isnít the same. Youíre a pilot on one and an operator on the other. If you can afford to, and you want to, Iíd take the ATR job and enjoy life with those you love.
