      You can use math to determine the best package.

      Longer leave is essentially more money too, you are paid to do nothing about work, so it's more money. If you work only on weekdays then one day of paid leave is worth your annual salary / (5 days *52 weeks ).

      Total up everything to see if it matches your new pay from your current job.

      And yes, what if it still matches??

      WOW, that raise though. In that case, use other factors to decide:

      • working hours (do you have to OT alot)

      • career progression (do you get a promotion in the new company)

      • work environment (what do people work there say about the company)

      • colleagues and boss (do you like working with them)

      Then also ask back yourself, why did you resign in the first place

      From the post, it sounds like you want to leave & have already decided to leave, so don't actually need any advise. Maybe you can let us know what are the reasons that even made you consider staying?

      e.g. Nice boss, relaxing work, near you house, etc..?

    I think it depends on your interest. Which company would you be more interested to work in? Which company would you be happier in?
