Very appropriate to ask. Doubt an agency that operates that way will give you the raise though

Why are you even thinking about a place that is a decrease? What are the upsides?

Would it be appropriate to ask for a 6 month review and have the opportunity at that time for a $2k raise or bonus?

I’m pretty high for my level and city and have been told by recruiters that it might be tough to keep me where I’m at. I was willing in my mind to go $2k down as that’s not a huge difference in standard of living. They ended up coming in exactly $2k lower, after I negotiated it up. I’m currently freelancing so do need a job, it’d be four brands that I’d manage on a new type of business (cpg) and I’d have three account people under me. So excited about growth and leadership opportunities not being offered other places
