Got a verbal offer with the same salary I am making right now , but with a minimum of 10% bonus and extra week of vacation. I tried to ask for more, but I couldn't make it. I feel I am still underpaid however, it's a better deal than what I have. Any advice ?

I wouldn't bother with a lateral move unless you dislike the company you're at. You could end up going to this new company and absolutely hate it.

Assume you get 10% bonus, is moving worth it? If you hate it where you are, sure. I personally don’t move unless I’m at least 25% higher NOT including the perks

Doesn't seem worth it.

Why not leverage this offer? Setup a call with your current manager tell them you got an offer with a guarantee minimum 10% bonus and extra week paid time off. Tell them you believe in the company direction but your current family situation could benefit from a 10% yearly bump and the extra week off. Draw out all the value you bring and ask is this something they can match in something similar based on market data of someone with your experience.

Worst case they say no, you could stay and counter with what would it take to get that salary bump, or take the offer knowing the current company was not invested in your growth and with some luck this one will be.

Once you are behind on the promotion train, they keep you behind.

"You are not eligible because blah blah we just did it"

"doesn't matter we underpaid you to begin with or we made you join at a lower title /pay grade, it is just policy and you won't catch up again for 18 months."

To get promoted, someone higher needs to be your advocate, if you don't have that then it is a waste of time trying. Similarly I have seen companies just switch a manager as to break a promotion cycle for all of a manager's reports. The new person is not going to stick their neck out for someone they don't know, so it can buy another 6mo-12mo.

Worst case scenario is you turn down the offer and the negotiation at your company turns sour.

Be bold, but understand office politics.
Especially in a cost cutting cycle.

What is the bonus criteria? Because I made that mistake of switching jobs with same pay but the bonus structure is what sold me and I took the opportunity only to find out the bonus structure changed and because I was new I didn’t have any leverage on amount and it was soooo not worth it!!! I would never move jobs again based on bonus alone!!!!

Unless you hate your current job, I wouldn't change.
