Has anyone ever accepted a counter offer from their current company? I received a great offer today (way more money, higher title) from a new agency and when I submitted my resignation my current company asked what it would take to keep me. I’m really flattered and I do really like my current agency, but I’m afraid that by accepting a counter now I’d be screwing myself for the future. Meaning, if they gave me a $40k raise now, for the next few review cycles I wouldn’t get much, if anything.

I'd never accept a counteroffer. There was a reason you were looking. Like the fact that they're underpaying you. Now they're on noticed that you're 'disloyal'. You'd be first in line for layoffs, and like you said, you wouldn't get much for raises.

If you don't like the new agency, perhaps you can come back after a period of time, but I wouldn't accept a counter. Good luck!

I accepted a counter offer but that's because it wasn't only for more money. It also was for fewer hours and more flexibility, which I needed as a new mom and didn't know they could offer. So if they're asking what it would take to make you stay, be honest and comprehensive.

Not sure I would accept a counteroffer. Once I’ve decided to go, I’m done and there’s not much that would make me stay. Plus in your mind you’re already “gone”. The counter won’t change why you wanted to leave in the first place.

Hello everyone!
I recently found out that I was being paid less than everyone in the team (more than 25% gap to more expe teammates, around 15% less than new hires)
We all had the same responsibilities, I consider I even had a heavier workload (talking in past tense since I very recently made an internal move).
Things to consider:
On a work visa
Non-white
Non-male
What would you recommend doing?
Keeping it to myself?
Speaking up? How? With who?

-TIA
