The rates at which current employers have made counteroffers has increased in the last decade. Human resource and recruiting professionals claim that accepting a counteroffer can be "career suicide."
Many candidates who are actively seeking a new position are often frustrated at their current job due to a variety of reasons. Most accept those reasons to be beyond repair without ever speaking with their supervisors. Some of these issues may easily be solved or mitigated and should be discussed before you accept a counteroffer. However, there are some issues that simply won't change.
Think twice about accepting a counteroffer. Will the working conditions remain the same? In the long run, would you be happy staying or leaving?
