External offer coming. 25-30% increase in base, plus a targeted 25% bonus. Certain my employer will not be able to match (would require two levels of promo and there are no bonuses). When I let my manager know, do I even leave it open for a counter? Or say “thank you, I am moving on.” I’ve compared job vs job and it will be a lot more work for much more money - and this is what I want. I am just curious for input on how to do this gracefully and if not even allowing a counter is distasteful.

I would resign and leave it at that. If they want to counter, let them being it up. Hear the offer out and then decline if it still doesn't make sense. Don't accept a counter offer if you don't want to stay at the place for long term.

Have you ever accepted an offer somewhere, and then a week later your current agency countered with a promotion and a higher salary than the other offer? I want to take the counter from my current place, but I don’t want to soil my reputation for revoking my acceptance. They are trying hard to retain me. Also, will I have a target on my back if I stay and they knew I was going to leave? I am also just grateful to have options and want to acknowledge that.
