9. If you really want my advice...

Your old employer has already pushed you to the point of being so dissatisfied, you have sought other employment. You don't like the pace of the job, and you were set psychologically on leaving, UNTIL your current employer made a counter offer. If you accept the counter offer and stay, you realize that you may end up having to go to the office much more than they let on.

This new company, on the other hand, offers you a fresh start, a chance to do something different, and an eagerness to have you as part of their team.

Do you want more money or a little more peace of mind?
