I’ve received a very nice offer from a competitor consulting but my company will cover it and add more cash bonus on top. How do I politely decline an offer without closing the doors in the future?

Decline it and never look back. Either it is better or it is not. Take your position and stand by it.

More cash bonus as a P? Curious to know how that is being executed. Also, if you are within 5-10 years of retirement, why do you want to keep a door open? Why a switch so far into your career? I mean, obviously being professional in how you turn them down is paramount, but you are already a Senior Principal and presumably you are well compensated and in a position where you are excelling.

I read something into “Senior Principal”. How does the cash bonus work?

After 4 years as a Systems Analyst on the same team, my salary has moved from around $57,000 to 83,000. Now I’m moving to a new team within the same company as a Cloud Engineer and am moving up to the next pay grade. During my offer 4 years ago, I feel I severely undersold myself as they actually offered me more than I asked for. Does anybody have input on what is a fair salary for my new role? I have a BS in CS and have my Cloud Practitioner cert. Working on my Solutions Architect cert.
