When does accepting counter offer from current employer make sense?
(Controller) | Sep 7, 2013
Many articles advise against accepting a job counter offer from the current employer, as your current boss may no longer trust your loyalty or may not present you with future advancement opportunities. I am somehow not fully convinced yet. Do you guys have any thoughts on that? Has anyone successfully stay and still be happy about the decision to accept counter offer retrospectively?

Employers tend to pay as little as possible for as long as possible
