Converting on a freelance-to-perm role, and the agency offered $10k less than my low range. I like the people but don’t love the client, and I’ve got enough cushion for a month or two. Do I: a) feel grateful for a full-time offer during an uncertain time, and just accept? b) counter with an argument about my existing value to the account, knowing that they probably won’t come up the full $10k? c) stand firm on my range and tell them I’m prepared to walk if it doesn’t work for them?

did your perm fee match what you got on freelance? because it shouldn’t. if it did not, and you took benefits, etc into consideration, then i would think about how easily you could pick up more freelance, and if the answer is “super easy”, then go with C. if it’s “getting freelance work is too hard right now” then go with B. never go with A.

Good call. We’re definitely negotiating in proper FT salary terms vs. freelance rates. My range is based on what I’ve been discussing in other FT convos. They’re claiming salary band restrictions for the role, but they’re also independent, so I feel like that should matter less…?

accept for now but keep looking

Just tell them thanks but its not enough and that you'd rather keep things the way they are.

My firm recently removed the CPA requirement to make manager in FDD stating that it is following the market.
