I have a job offer from a new company, but would like to give my current employer the opportunity to make a counteroffer. Do I accept the offer knowing there is a small chance I will rescind, or do I discuss this with my manager (who is C-Level and can make a decision) before accepting? For some background, I like my job and was not specifically looking to make a move, but have been feeling a bit stalled at my current company and connected well with the leadership in this potential new company. Any advice on how to approach this situation is welcome.
