I think it might largely depend on what you feel right doing.

By all means, you can see if the new company will be willing to match what your current employer is offering. Be honest about what was tendered, and that it is tempting to stay with your old firm (since that's the impression I'm getting from your post). There's always the option to change your mind - folks do it all the time - or to see if the new firm will sweeten the pot.

It is, after all, just business.

Hi,
Stay back as suggested by others. Thank god that your boss came back in right time. In my case I was given the counter offer last day after serving the notice period which was too late. If it would have been immediately after resignation I would have stayed back. I had good reputation and rapport over there. I would have stayed in that organization because of all other good things.Just wanted to share my experience.
Anyways all the best and do well.

I might look at this way, when you were with them, they never valued you,now you are leaving, they understand your worth. So what if you stay back and want to have growth in future in same company, you have to get new offer!

In my case decision to stay back doesn't work out. I would say move on.

thanks guys for such a nice feedback. i have decided to stay back and people at my workplace appriciated me for that..its a small firm so doesnt have proper HR department. but now they are looking to establish in market more firmly and in sooner future they will have HR and review processes for appraisal.
