I'm looking for some advice in two areas.
1. How do you all feel about using a job offer to negotiate a higher salary in your current job and how would you do it? I'm currently being recruited into a new company that will likely pay $35,000 more a year than what I currently make. My current boss is paying me under market, but there are reasons I might want to stay at my current job if he increases my pay.
2. If I decide to quit to pursue the other job, how do I do this without feeling so guilty and bad about it? Even though I've always had an issue with my salary at my current job, my boss has given me increased responsibility and opportunities at this job. I know leaving will put him in a bad position but I know I'm not being paid my worth.
Thanks for the advice in advance!
