How do I define in a positive way my career goal to my boss, when I see that I'm failing?

How do I take advantage of a much better offer in monetary terms if I don't actually want to change companies?

How do I define in a positive way my career goal to my boss, when I see that I'm failing?

Will big 4 tell next employer I was put on pip

In the USA putting anything in the reference other than “X worked here from this date to that date” puts the company at risk of getting sued. Maybe not successfully, but being sued is always a cost ...

How do I define in a positive way my career goal to my boss, when I see that I'm failing?
