I have another offer from a company other than the one I'm working for currently. The reasons I'm looking to leave are:
- I feel that I'm not gaining experience
- No contract, nor insurance whatsoever, Also I'm working with my own laptop.
- No clear plans (or at least, announced). Only a plan to start the product we're working on from scratch, since the current one is full of bad practices and outdated libraries (result of continues changing developers I think).
The only advantage that I find, Is that it's close to my home, Unlike the new offer, where the company is a bit further.
When I told my manager that I'm resigning, He tried to know why. He said "we can increase the salary", although I tried to negotiate with him about the salary before and he didn't agree to increase above a certain number.
He also said we have plans and many funds opportunities that're unannounced. Also we can work on the insurance and whatsoever.
I'm really hesitated here, should I believe him ? I don't know what's lying ahead, but the new offer has a complete package of salary/insurance/contract. Also I think I'll be gaining more experience, although I can't know for sure until I work there.
The really one point that pushing me toward accepting the counter offer is that the location is close to my home.
