Whether he's supportive or not doesn't matter. You had an agreement going into the job that should have been recorded with HR. I would take it up with them

Yikes…I’d maybe setup time with your current manager and have a conversation live versus more email to understand their concern and perhaps you can assuage? Hoping there is a way you can ease any concerns and get their support.

Also does the recruiter have anything in writing that they can share with you? (Email between your previous manager and the recruiter discussing this arrangement? There might be something?) any ammunition would be helpful

Finally, I know you probably don’t want to go this route but connect with HR and discuss further and see if they can support you?

Good luck!!

I agree with the above – see if HR has any record, check old e-mails with your boss. Otherwise explain to new boss that you would not have taken this role otherwise and it was a key factor in your deciding to go with their company over other offers.

You said it was over the phone with the recruiter too. If the recruiter is still at the company, check with them to see if they will corroborate the arrangement. And this time, get it in writing.

Yeah this would be the only option if it's not in writing with your previous manager

My manager gave me a poor performance review because he expects me to perform like an L3 when I’m an L1. He kept saying I’m an L2 and I should be starting to perform like L3, and when I corrected him that I’m literally entry level with 8 months of experience, he said L1 and 2 are the same thing (its not, there’s 2 years between the levels and 20% pay diff).

At this point I don’t think I can even meet his expectations and will probably get fired.
