Good idea to accept a counter offer of 15% when over >50% of original project team has left in the last month?

15% vs what? 15% over the new offer? Why did you seek a new offer? More money won't fix issues with nature/quality of work, client variety, culture, WLB or people. If 50% of people have left so quickly, it sounds like non financial reasons are common. Accepting counter offers is usually not recommended, but there are exceptions.

My raise hopping firms is ~60% currently doing the same work. It would be a ~75% raise to take the counter offer. WLB is great, work is great, money is life changing regardless of staying or taking the counter. More concerned with the implications of taking a counter.

M1 has the correct answer. You don’t want to be left holding the bag and become desperate.
