Q: Should I accept a counteroffer and stay with my employer?
On the one hand, you're always going to be the person who wanted to leave. On the other hand, a counteroffer also gives you negotiating power — particularly to get that raise. Ultimately, the right decision depends on the culture of your organization and your field, and on what you really want from the situation.
