What a wonderful feeling! Scary and enthralling all at the same time. It does have a calming effect knowing that you have zero to lose, however. I was told a counter offer would be coming and I said that it had better be eye opening for me to even consider.
Life is good, today... I think I'll go have a beer.
Very nice! Congrats!
I've got three different versions of a resignation letter I plan on handing in near the end of this year. It's fun to work on it from time to time as the organization (and my management chain) changes.
I have no intention of accepting any counters myself. But, just to see how far they might be willing to jump, I'll probably tell them not to even waste their time extending one unless it's what I've always called "crazy stupid" money. Meaning, the company would be crazy and stupid to offer it, and I'd be crazy and stupid for turning it down.
When they ask me what my version of "crazy stupid" money is, I'll tell them...one million dollars (after tax) for one more year's work.
Zero chance of that happening, but it'll be fun to see the looks on their faces as they realize I'm serious. LOL.
