New job offer might be more than boss makes - start with VP?
« on: November 28, 2018, 01:04:37 PM »
Hi all,

Topic pretty much covers it - I'm likely about to receive a new job offer for a position that might bump my salary above my immediate supervisors. I'm willing to hear out a counter-offer, but I honestly don't think my current company will be able to beat it unless my position expands or role changes.

I had planned to go to my management and mention that I've received another opportunity that is excellent, although I'm also enjoying my current position (the truth) and would consider staying if arrangements could be made to match or exceed the details of my offer.

The only thing is - if I start this conversation with my manager it might be impossible to make it work organizationally.

Has anyone been in this situation - should I start the conversation with my VP (next-level manager) and see if it's even in the realm of possibility that they'd be able to make something work? How should I frame that conversation?

Thanks!
