I've always told myself that money isn't the most important thing and I still stand by that...so maybe I'm answering my own question a bit. But even still, I'm curious what others philosophies are on this subject.

One other thing I forgot to mention is that my company requires you to stick around after they pay for your schooling or you have to return some or all of the tuition they paid for. I think it's prorated out to 48 months from completion of the given course. It would suck to have to pay any of that back...

Just tell the new employer that this is a requirement of your current employer and to recruit you they will have to increase your signing bonus by the amount of the payback. To avoid any income tax consequences, have the new employer pay the former employer directly. Also, former employers don't want to chase their ex-employees for money. It is a moral commitment that they rely on.
