Just got promoted. At the same time, got an industry offer from my target sector, director of the internal strategy team. Both TC and base of the offer is 10% lower than my current numbers, and the gap will become 50k-60k reduction in base alone after my promotion. Am i crazy to still consider this offer?

Tell them you got promoted and try to negotiate for more? Not crazy, depends what you are looking for.

If you started working at a company for like a year as a staff level, for example 2019-present, and this is reflected on LinkedIn, do you guys update any promotions to show it as (the date or year of promotion) -present... or just show it as 2019-present? I’ve seen people do the latter more but is that even right?

Have you ever accepted an offer somewhere, and then a week later your current agency countered with a promotion and a higher salary than the other offer? I want to take the counter from my current place, but I don’t want to soil my reputation for revoking my acceptance. They are trying hard to retain me. Also, will I have a target on my back if I stay and they knew I was going to leave? I am also just grateful to have options and want to acknowledge that.

Should I push to have a review/promotion packet now even tho it’s only been 3 months?
