Counter offers (and the related discussions) are an emotional topic. The comments on two of my editorials for SQLServerCentral (The Counter Offer – Part 1 and The Counter Offer – Part 2) show that. The takeaway for me is that we are still torn about being loyal employees and expecting that loyalty back and the workplace reality of each side needing to look after their own interests.
From a writing perspective it still feels like I don’t quite drive the thinking/conversation in the direction I intended. I want to have an open conversation, but focused more. Maybe not possible? Not good? Don’t know yet.
