10 good reasons for not accepting a counteroffer

  1. You have made your employer aware of your dissatisfaction. From this day on, your loyalty will be in question.
  2. When promotions are considered, your employer will take your lack of loyalty into account.
  3. Once the word gets out, your relationship with your co-workers will never be the same.
  4. There could be a strong impact later on your sense of pride. You could feel like you've been bought.
  5. When times get tough, your employer will begin the cutbacks with you.
  6. Your company is likely to begin looking — immediately — for your replacement.
  7. Statistics show that 85% of those who accept a counteroffer end up leaving — voluntarily or involuntarily — within one year.
  8. You will probably wonder where the extra money is suddenly coming from. Is it just an advance on a raise you would have got anyway?
  9. A counteroffer raises doubts about the type of company you work for. Why should you have to threaten to resign before they give you what you're worth?
  10. The same circumstances that caused you to consider leaving will likely recur in the future.
