Wanted to get some thoughts. My wife works in private accounting and just got promoted to manager. We prepared for her compensation negotiation for about a week. She goes in and they low ball her with only a 4k raise. She counters with her value to the firm and the office managing partner literally laughs in her face. You guys think she should just bail? I am embarrassed that this is how they treat their employees.

Hi everyone. I was recently offered a position at a different company (a construction company) that offers $10K more than my current job. After low-balling my salary for 3 years, this company has offered to up my salary by $6K. The old company (AECOM) keeps telling me that they see a bright future for me if i stay. I’m very torn. Should i stay at the place I’m established in, or should i go to a new company?
