Ugh. This always gets into a tricky area.

I don't have a pollyanna attitude towards my current employer, but I think they do good work and mostly, there's just a lot of really good people there. Plus, the last thing you want to do in an interview is bash your current employer.

Secondly, I'm underpaid where I'm at - been told this time and time again - again, this just happens. But you can't say "I'm thinking of changing jobs because I'm just not making enough where I'm at and I'm not likely to - at least not until I get a job offer on the table that I can ask them to match, which God knows, they may not, so this has to be a viable option... Oh jeez, the interview was going so well, what happened?"
