So, recruiter just called with an offer but leveled down on the position. Does anyone here have success stories to sticking with the position you interviewed for (what did you say/do)?

This is right out of the Deloitte recruiter playbook lol.

Responsibility is overrated. Take the money.

This! Idk why people are in a rush for titles. I’ve always been about more money less responsibility. Know that is not the norm tho.

How good is the monetary benefit? Is it big enough to compensate for a step down? It's not just the job title but your responsibilities too. Can you live with being hands-on-keyboard all the time vs leading discussions and providing thought leadership (hypothetically)?

It’s hard to negotiate when recruiters level down . If you are happy with TC, you can take it . I would have declined the offer .

If you feel qualified for the position that you interviewed for, I would decline.

This sounds like something Amazon will do

I got down leveled from EM to SC because I lacked pharma experience. It was frustrating, but the offer I got was basically at the top of the SC range, was effectively a promotion vs my previous place, and was a big raise. I accepted and got promoted two years later (wasn't official until 9 months after that due to promotion and wage freeze). Promo has definitely helped in opening up opportunities in the market. And now I'm interviewing people whom I'm suggesting to down level... because they lack pharma experience. Turns out the hiring approach was the right one.

I wouldn’t go for it in this market…unless the pay increase is significant.

EY leveled me down and offered me 15% less than the original floor number we'd agreed on lol

Instead I left for industry for a gargantuan raise
