Would you be willing to take a demotion for more money?

My boss keeps saying cryptic things that has me feeling like I am at risk of being laid off. Funny enough, today a friend reached out to me about an in-house position at her company. It seems ok and there is a chance I would be able to get a $5k or so raise in pay, but the position would be a huge title demotion for me from a mid-level strategist with 6 yrs experience to more entry-level coordinator role. Is it worth it?

Do you want to work In-house or agency in the long run? It’s much harder to make the switch later in your career so if that’s on your plan and you won’t lose money, why not? However if you’re only taking it to avoid a layoff and would rather be agency you may find the switch back harder.

Agree with VP1... but On the flip side, also feel like 2020 is a weird year and if you found that in the future, in house wasn’t working for you, it’s an easy explanation about job security during a pandemic.

This makes me question whether you were paid fairly to begin with

Meh I feel like I could be making a little more but my salary is pretty standard for an agency. The in-house position is with a massive global company that has been turning a huge profit in 2020, so all their positions are VERY well paid.

See if you can negotiate the title based on your exp. Or else get in, prove yourself and you will move up quick. Find a sponsor (maybe your friend?) who can sing your praises and help you navigate the culture to rise up faster.

Which strategy is better?

#1 - The first tactic I learned for salary negotiation is to give them a # and act like you will walk away if it's not met. I forget the details, but something like even if they give you a lower #, you still stick to your #.

#2 - You can also give them a # and they may come back with a lower # and you can take it or leave it.

#3 - A new coach told me about giving a range. He said if you give them a #, they may flat out say no.

Can't they say no to any of these?
