Has anyone used a competing offer for a higher level role on the same team at a different company to push to a pay increase or title bump? How did you bring it up to your manager and how did it go?

My manager did not counter. Unless I’m the village idiot, I think my company decided to stop matching offers (there’s been attrition lately too).

I know plenty of people who have. I just don't know how the conversation went. I think you need to be brave, and factual, and just explain that you have an offer but that you like your current location/team/wonderful manager and would consider staying if a pay increase were involved.

Start by explaining that you want to stay and find a way to make it work. Build trust in the relationship that you won't jump ship to the next best thing.

Then have a candid discussion about comp and what you would like (e.g. based on the market, based on skillset). Can mention the offer tactfully but emphasize that you really like your team and intend to stay. Ask how we can get to a solution together

At my company, that seems to be the only way people (who are not C-level) have been able to get substantial raises.

Hi there!
I completed the last round of an interview (presentation) last week. Originally they said they would be calling my references & then make an offer accordingly.
Today they updated that they'd like me to travel to their HQ (based in Nordics & I'm in London) for the final round where I'd meet the CEO, the hiring manager and a couple of people in the team.
I don't think I'm the only one in the process - even though initially the last round was the presentation.

Hi all, was hoping for clarity on offers from FANG/Tier 2 tech I received recently. Base pay is still within range of 130-150K, but equity components have dropped dramatically. For reference, for similar positions, I was receiving grants of 150K - 200K over 4 years for data analyst positions (4-5 YOE) in Aug’21-Feb’22. For personal reasons, I did not accept these offers. Now the equity grants are coming in like 50-70K over 4 years. Is this market wide for non SWE/PM roles due to stock market?
