Resignation, Firing & Termination Questions

What are the cons of a resignation counter offer?

Construction counter offers are not safe to accept because once a construction resignation takes place, loyalty and trust is broken and the construction employer is not likely to forget. Also a message is sent to other construction employees that you received a promotion or pay increase as a result of resigning which is the wrong message to send construction employees. Statistics state that 8 out of 10 construction employees who accept counter offers end up leaving their construction employers anyway because rarely do the circumstances change which caused the construction employee to seek alternative construction employment initially.
