Offered promotion after resign notice

Have you been to a situation where you are being offered a promotion after you send the resign notice email to your boss? I am in big dilemma.

I am fully aware that it is a big NO to take up since they never understood the value until you give the notice. However I just want to get feedback or advice if anyone who have taken up the promotion and say no to prospective employer. How long did you stay even after you offered the promotion in current job?

I like the work what I have been doing. And good thing is the wlb and commute which is pretty good.

The new place I am heading is start up offering TC around 25k more plus 15k sign on bonus in ( plus equity of 2000 stocks i.e paper money in the unicorn start up) very well funded Bio start up and working on ML/AI good stuff. So overall about ~12% hike.

TC ~195k , yoe 6 years.

No trolling please. Any valuable feedback you can provide is greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Just imagine what the relationship with your boss will be if you decide to stay... I doubt it'll be good.

    Most people who accept those counter offers do end up leaving shortly after anyway.

      Agree, most people stay from what I have heard is less than year. But it would no longer a good chemistry for the long term.

      I stayed got more money and a promotion and then used that as a leverage to get an even bigger offer few months after.

      I still go out my the manager for drinks. So no hard feelings. Even if that wasn’t the case who gives a shit. It’s your future not theirs.

    Isn't it pathetic your boss never recognized and appreciated you or did anything to keep you happy UNTIL you decided to jump ship.

    They already know you did this once.

    12 to leave is risky ... doesn’t seem worth it

      That is true. Plus the risk of joining a start up.

  • Jump. Was offered raise + promotion + perks after resigning. They had years to do that as I kept asking. They're just doing the minimum needed to keep you there. Company looks out for its best interests; you look out for yours

    Use it as leverage to get a renegotiate with the new company.

    If you liked your job, then why didn’t you ask for a raise before applying elsewhere?

      True, I was under impression that the promotion only happens twice in a year but I was wrong. I am told the promotion can happen anytime in the year. I was waiting for this year to end. I have brought up the promotion topic during 1 on 1 couple of times but I was being told but to be honest my manager said we will look into it. I will review competency document and will review. It is been 3 months. Now the water is at neck now for them.

    Giving a good ending story because everyone else has a negative advice.

    I have been given a counter offer with 33% hike(~100k per year) with a promise from a VP to support my promo attempt next time so I don't leave the company and overall have had a positive experience and have the promo as well as suggested.

    It's not always a mistake to stay make a call based on how your relationship with your manager is.

    It's a general belief you'll have less leverage once you decide to stay put. It's true in many cases unless you have a decent boss. But personally I wouldn't stay in any scenario once I expressed I wanted to leave.

  • Let's say you stayed. What do you think the impact to your rep and to trust between you and boss/company will be? If you do not care about the long-term future at current place, I would ask for a very substantial raise along with the promotion. Then use it as leverage, when you leave in a year.

      The new company can not wait more than 60 days unfortunately. But I see your point.
