What do you do when you get a counteroffer and people involved after telling your boss you’re resigning? Do you consider it?

It depends on why you are leaving. If you are unhappy than more money isn’t going to help but if the move was financially motivated and you love your current job, sure consider it. People will tell you not to, but do what’s right for you! Just don’t expect anything about your job to change except for the paycheck.


I wouldnt

Agree with SPM. If your main issue was money and are otherwise content, definitely consider it. If the job itself is making you unhappy, get outta there.

I think it’s a moment to highlight your goals and see if your current employer can help you meet them. I think a counter offer is clearly a symbol they’re invested in you so it’s worth exploring. In my experience, all agencies have similar challenges and frustrations so most people are moving between agencies to get the bigger bumps. A counter offer accomplishes the same thing but you remain with the devil you know. If you’re miserable where you are this is all irrelevant and no counter is worth it! Good luck!

I'd move on. If I took the time to interview elsewhere, I'd take that as a sign I'm ready to leave instead of back track on it. Trust your instinct as we don't know anything about your real situation.

I’m 24 with already 55k saved up in retirement (between 401k and Roth IRA) and currently contributing $18k yearly. I’m not near the 401k max yearly contribution and have some extra money I can contribute. Do you recommend I up my 401k contribution or open a brokerage account and invest there? Not trying to tie too money into retirement. Emergency fund is taken care of.

I’m new to consulting. Trying to understand what managers are supposed to do. I’m on a project, only senior with 3 managers. I’m doing all the slides and all managers tell me is what slides they want. Is managers job more like I need this slide and that slide and Senior or associate doing all the work? It’s tough as a person new to consulting from the industry with no other associate or senior. Just me, one senior and 3 managers.

Fishbowl seriously needs to add a feature for cleaning notifications.


Hot take: consultants at MBB have big egos and seem to promote the idea that they're the "best of the best" not realizing that, in 2021, the "best of the best" works in "tech" typically as engineers and consultants are actually just overworked also rans with oversized egos.


What show should I watch next on Netflix or HBO? I've watched all released episodes of: Lost, The Office, HIMYM, Friends, Peaky Blinders, Sherlock, Game of Thrones, The League, The Walking Dead...
