It's totally understandable to feel that way.
Personally I'd want to ask manager guy what the difference between 'right there' and ... 'there' is exactly. What is or isn't happening that is making the difference and so forth.
Might be worth looking around at other opportunists just to get a feel for the current lay of the land? Sometimes folks do that and find they are actually pretty happy to stay where they are.
Root686546dSounds like they’re perfectly happy keeping you where you are. Convince them otherwise. Otherwise they’ll continue to get the same productivity for the same salary. Stand up for yourself, drop hints that you’re looking elsewhere and fielding other offers, and that some of them sound better. It’ll scare them into showing their hand: either they want you and will try to keep you, or they don’t want you at all.
If you want to change something in your life, you’ve got to change something in your life.
