If your firm agreed to match the salary/benefits you would get if you accepted another offer, would you stay? What would the downsides be (other than the typical b4 hours)?

To me the biggest downside of using an external offer to get better perks at your current job is the damage to your perception. I feel like no matter what, in managements eyes you’re always going to be that guy/gal that was planning to leave. Maybe I’m just paranoid but for me that why I decided not stay when my old firm asked me to stay.

Nope. If you were worth that much the whole time, they should of given it to you sooner. Know your worth.

I wanted to go to a different practice within KPMG. Got an external offer (diff b4), KPMG matched everything within the 2 day time span I had before other offer expired, and I stayed. People here always been good to me, just needed to leave audit.

Nah. There's a reason we look elsewhere. It's not just out of boredom one day.

No because the partner is always going to know you’re ready to jump ship. If you’re actively looking elsewhere you already made your decision.

Yeah, I accepted my firms counteroffer which was essentially a match and I have grown with my firm. No downsides in my opinion as I got higher pay to continue working with the team I like and I get to keep the network (other than the hours like you mentioned…).
