This question already has an answer here:
So prospective company has given me an offer of employment and they have given me one week to decide. I just got a call today (3 days later) by the recruiter because she wanted to see how things were going and if I had any questions (I did not pick up - I just wasn't ready to talk).
I've expressed my dissatisfaction with my current company multiple times for them to change their tune. Since current company still have not changed how they behave, I've decided to leave and made it known to my managers today.
When they learned I had received an offer, they asked if I was expecting a counter offer. I let them know that if they decided to counter I would be happy to consider it but my mind has been made up that the right decision is to leave. So current company would have to make it worth my while. My overall issue over this whole situation is that current company is too slow to make decisions and changes. I'm worried that they will take too long to respond with a counter and I will have used up all my time to respond to prospective company.
How can I handle this in a professional manner such that I can hear from both companies before making my decision? I want my current company to tell me as soon as possible if they think they can meet my salary requirements and fast. I don't like to keep people waiting especially since I promised I would have an answer ready within the week. What do I do now?
