Should you accept a counteroffer?
Look at some of the things you should consider before accepting a counteroffer from your current employer. But in short, our advice is that you probably shouldn’t, after all, there was a reason you began to look for something new.
Moving jobs is exciting but also sometimes stressful. Whether you’re leaving for a better opportunity or no longer enjoy where you are anymore, most people are pretty surprised when they hand in their notice and receive a counteroffer in return. In that moment, it can be very tempting to accept it too, especially if it’s a job you enjoy. You’d be doing exactly same role, but this time with the promise of more money in an environment you’re familiar with. You avoid the risk of joining a company you may not like and working with a team you’re not certain you’ll gel with.
Don’t be tempted…by accepting a counteroffer you’ll find a lot changes.
