Which job would you choose?

I currently work in a hospital as an I.T. professional (information technology aka computer person). The benefits are really good, however the pay is not that great, I make enough to pay my bills and have extra but not near what I'm worth with my background and education. These are the benefits I have with the job I have now Medical/Dental/Optical - the medical plan I have a $100 deductible and if for any treatment I have at the hospital I work at after the deductible, everything is covered 100%. There are multiple plans for this to choose from, but both for group premiums seem high, I've worked at other companies where they were better premiums, however the companies also had more employees. For the dental and optical they are average. 403B (401K)/Pension: They contribute to this whether or not I do, however they only mate 50% of what I put in up to 5% of my wages. Any other job I've had has matched 100% up to either 5% or 10%. Vactaion: I have been here for 2 years and get just over 3 weeks of vacation. Sick time: I acrue 1 week of sick time per yer, what I don't use they pay me for at the end of the year. I have been offered a new job. I wasn't really looking for a new job, but I had a resume on a job website and their human resources deparment found it. They did a phone interview with me and then forwarded it to their hiring manager for the position and their VP of information technology. I then had a face to face interview with both of them. This job is in the banking industry at a local credit union with multiple locations. The job itself is a information technology job. The benefits though aren't as good, it has the same medical/dental/optical benenits but the medical is the expected/average 80/20 plan. Their 401K is 100% match up to 10%. Vacation is 2 weeks a year, and sick time is 1 week. Pay is much better, I'm paid hourly and this position is also hourly but its about $8-10 hr more an hour then I make right now, which by the year is almost $20,000 more. I say 8-10 because at my current job I have a base wage, plus a differential shift premium for working 3rd shift. It suits my skill set better - I'm over qualified for the job I have right now. Its a better working schedule - right now I have a hard time going to school because my schedule rotates, for 2 weeks I work 9p-730a and then for 1 week I work 6p-430a. So any classes I'd need to attend actually at the campus in the morning would 1 week be in the middle of my sleep schedule, and in the evening 2 weeks would be in the middle of my work schedule. Overall the job I have not despite the pay, I like it there. I like my boss and the majority of the co-workers I have. However the 2 direct co-workers I have are harder to work with, they are both twice my age so there is a generational gap, and both are very threatended by me. One found out by snooping that I was hired in at more than both of them were already making after being there 3 & 4 years each, I didn't tell either of them how much I make. We have a software that allows remote access into company computers and one night while I was working with him he remoted into my computer while I was viewing my paycheck. Their attitude towards me is very poor, I have more I.T. experience then both of them combined and they get mad when I know the answer to a question that they don't, one complains about everything all night long and the other one whines about everything that is wrong in her life. I know sometimes I am part of the problem rather then the solution because I don't let them walk all over me (they are not my superiors), but the 2 people were in my job prior to me (and them) had the same complaints about them and I figure it cant be all 3 of us. They are very bad for moral. I'm nice to them and help when I can when they are having problems of being able to fix things, however I've also taken up only talking to them if it is work related. Everyone else in our I.T. department I get along fine with.
