While I am waiting for my start day, another company reached out and offers me a D role for same responsibility. What should I do as I don't want to burn bridge, but I do want career progression. any advice?

I recently transitioned from a design role into art direction. However, 85% of what my agency does is TikTok work. So an enormous part of the role is working with influencers and reactive content based on what’s trending. Honestly, I’m miserable. The work is so cringe IMO and There is very little focus on creative storytelling through design. Also, this is the most money I’ve ever made. Should I suck it up and try to disassociate from the work, or make a move before I become the sour grapes.
