Q. What is your opinion of counter offers? After I gave my notice, my employer beat the offer from my new employer by $5,000 and three additional vacation days. I left anyway and am very happy in my new position. My family thinks it was a mistake, and I should have stayed. I don’t think so because I know I wouldn’t see another raise for years. What do you think?
