10 Reasons for Not Accepting a Counter Offer

The subject of a counter offer by your current employer is one you should discuss in great detail with your recruiter.

  1. You have now made your employer aware that you are unhappy. From this day on, your loyalty will always be in question.
  2. When promotion time comes around, your employer will remember who is loyal and who is not.
  3. When times get tough, your employer will begin the cutbacks with you.
  4. Accepting a counter offer is an insult to your intelligence and a blow to your personal pride: you were bought.
  5. Where is the money for the counter offer coming from? All companies have a wage and salary guideline which must be followed. Is it your next raise early?
  6. Your company will immediately start looking or a new person at a cheaper price.
  7. The same circumstances that now cause you to consider a change will repeat themselves in the future, even if you accept a counter offer.
  8. As reported in US Business News Magazine, Statistics show that if you accept a counter offer, the probability of voluntarily leaving in six months or being let go in One year is over 90%.
  9. Once the word gets out, the relationship that you now enjoy with your co-workers will never be the same. You will lose the personal satisfaction of peer group acceptance.
  10. What type of company do you work for if you have to threaten to resign before they give you what you are worth?
