If you can walk on water, who needs a boat?

It’s so sweet when you can do that. Something similar happened to me when I was at HP. However I actually had to give them my notice. They came back 24hrs later to beat the offer that was in front of me and threw in 30K in stock and two months salary as a retention bonus.

That is cool, being pursued is always awesome and flattering. But being humble is king. Just remember you’re riding somebody’s payroll.

They wasted their own time. They didn't act fast enough when I countered.

A smart person knows when they are in a good job. Job hopping can certainly up your paycheck but sometimes it's just not worth it due to heavy travel or instability of the position and/or company. There has been more than one person that made the jump from a good company for more money and soon found themselves unemployed.

I was an IT contractor for 20+ years and that gave me a lot of experience seeing how companies operate and how happy their employees were. Most of the companies I contracted with over the years were miserable places to work with unhappy employees. There were a very few of them that i'd ever consider taking a permanent position with.

The company I work for now is great compared to those other miserable companies - I'm happy and I have no intention of leaving anytime soon.

Sounds like Chris knows he's in the saddle and he can call the shots

Remember the boat story? Poor SVO was on the receiving end after trying to single-handedly take down a craft with some 25 Somalian pirates.

Thats essentially how my most recent job interview went except they met my terms and I accepted the position. The new company is growing like crazy too. Thanks Donald!

Last two years I've had something like that come up. Wondering if that was an anomaly or it's a common thing.
