Can I approach my employer and tell them that I got an offer from another employer and if they are willing to make me a counter offer in order to get a raise and make me stay?
The point is this is a made up story and I'd like to see if my employer is willing to give me a raise and this way I can explore my options further. I noticed if people are more harsh with my employer the company is more willing to negotiate.
Or how does it work? Do I need a prove that I got an offer from someone else? This isn't a try to mess with my employer or put a burden on his shoulders. The company is doing well but underpaying many employees lately.
