The company I work for is being “acquired” by a prominent company (will not name at this time). I received an offer for Associate Creative Director at management level, however the offer is significantly less than the recruiter originally quoted me (she was aware of my experience etc when she originally quoted). Also, this base salary offer is less than my current salary and industry standard. I’ve been told there’s not really room for negotiation. Is this a red flag? Any advise is appreciated.

It sounds like u are being low balled out instead of the direct headcount removal. The market sucks right now though. Looks like they no longer trust u after they convinced u to stay. How did u resolve this?

So what are your options here? Take the deal or headcount removed in the aquision?

I believe those are my options. I will find out more tomorrow, but I haven’t been in this position before. Looking for any advice or insight.

A little more information: About a year ago, I had an an offer for a position at another prominent company, but the company I work for let me know of the acquisition and told me it would be a great opportunity, asking me to stay on…

Has anyone ever accepted a counter offer from their current company? I received a great offer today (way more money, higher title) from a new agency and when I submitted my resignation my current company asked what it would take to keep me. I’m really flattered and I do really like my current agency, but I’m afraid that by accepting a counter now I’d be screwing myself for the future. Meaning, if they gave me a $40k raise now, for the next few review cycles I wouldn’t get much, if anything.
