If your employer needs you and cannot replace easily, you won't be shown the door. Most likely you'll get what you want, although it may be less than you asked. Then if you under-perform that could be held against you, but so would be the case with Weber. Remember, if your employer or GM loves you, it is a sure sign that you're underpaid.
