According to national surveys of employees that accept counter-offers, 50-80 percent
voluntarily leave their employer within six months of accepting the counter-offer because
of broken promises. The majority of the balance of employees that accept counter-offers
involuntarily leave their current employers within twelve months of accepting the counter-
offer (terminated, fired, laid off, etc.).
As attractive as counter-offers may appear, they greatly decrease your
chances of achieving your career potential.
