Resignation, Firing & Termination Questions


Given a shot at a better position with the same salary, my current construction employer has countered. I have been adviced NOT to take the offer by friends and family. I am a little confused as to why they would suggest this. What are your thoughts?

If you have already made up your mind, stand firm in this decision. Think about this.
No matter what you may be told, your loyalty to your construction employer will forever be in question. You will always be suspected of looking for other employment and your management will always doubt your position in the long term picture.
Any promised changes to your employment status to prevent you from leaving do not address the real issues for your resignation. If your employer was truly concerned with these issues they would have been addressed before you were forced to resign.
Generally, well managed construction employers do not make counter offers. They have established policies and compensation packages that are fair and equitable and do not wait for counter offer coercion to do what is right for their employees. Added by:- Admin
