Yeah. And at first I was pissed. But went ahead with it and made bank as a freelancer. Eventually full time offers came through at both the original place and a better agency, obviously I took the gig at the better agency.

Are you already a freelancer? Are they offering you a freelance rate or just your full time salary with no commitment?

See if you can negotiate a contract for 6 months so you have some stability.
