black-kite148047dSeriously in what country do you live where you can ask for a 43% raise?
Where I live it’s out of the question to ask for any raise after probation. Gotta wait a year and it’s max 10%.
zlice418747dfuk the counter. dont even bother, dont tell new ppl, just book it. asking the other job may leave you stuck with this one that drags their feet.
netikras2947847dSome companies have an "emergency" procedure to save employees that are leaving. Not only talking about, but are all set to leave. That's what may have expedited the counter offer when you told them you have a spot ready for you elsewhere.
Max 10 %? That's bullshit.
The maximum percentage is defined by your market value. Your company has to compete with other companies for employees.
I have a long rant how this is an example of a prisoner's dilemma and how companies are generally betraying you, but, hey character limit.
Anyway, if the top off raises at 10%, then they are just asking you to change companies.
