Is money the only reason you were looking to leave? You should really consider all the reasons you were looking to begin with. Most people who accept a counter still end up leaving within a year.

Those stats are normally correct on leaving within one year with a counter offer. I would be an exception and stayed with BDO and have loved it. It is just based on the individual person. I would not think they would tell you such and not come through with it. At a new job you have to start over on trust and new ways of doing things. Obviously these partners think you are worth saving or they would let you walk. You need to evaluate the 'why' that you looked at another firm in the first place.

but this was only in person meeting, and I haven't gotten anything in writing from the partners at my current firm - anything I should be doing before I take their word for it? I need to let GT know asap.

Raises will be bigger in Big 4 so the salary match is better, but to the above points, there probably is more reason than just money for the consideration. I would stick it out at Big 4 until you really find what you want to do.
