Asked for an increase from 125k to 150k and they said they can do it, then my bosses asked what I would do differently despite being a clear top performer and way ahead of the benchmarks they expected (10mo in). Thoughts? How do I respond?

Considering that I have outperformed the benchmarks that were set for me by a wide margin I believe that this increase will reward and motivate my efforts to continue performing at the highest level as should be the case with any employee whom the company values and wants to retain.

That's a really good response. Thank you!

“What would I do differently? Not sure what you mean. I believe in being paid fairly for my efforts. If you don’t value top performers over average performers then I don’t see the value in continuing to be a top performer. If you have a different way of valuing top performers then please let me know.”

Literally in final interviews elsewhere because they called my bluff at my job. Paid 115k on a title that should make 130-140, and actively working both the regional and Director role, so I told my boss the following:
“Look, I genuinely enjoy this team and want this to be a long-term company for me. But I also cannot stagnate, or continue to be underpaid and under titled. Is there a position open or that can be created?”

They said they would be creating a Director role for me to pay and title me appropriately. Then it got cut from the budget. So my boss has already told me to please let him know who I’m interviewing with, a strong but accurate assumption.
