How to say no to boss begging me to stay
After a year on the job, I got a nice lateral offer from a tier 1 fund in my field to join their team. I've been looking to jump ship for some time, so I was ecstatic to get the offer letter. The pay bump was also nice.
I told my boss about my plan to bounce, and he told me that I needed to stay - half-jokingly, half-seriously. In the end, he asked me to reconsider my decision and meet up in person next week to "assess the situation together."
My decision has already been made, but I wanted to see how you guys would carry out the in-person meeting that I have coming up. I think he'll be pretty upset, but I want to keep a good relationship with him since he's been one of the best bosses I have had.
