I have been working in a very toxic office where I was really getting taken advantage of.
I started looking around in the same industry and secured a job interview. Things in my current office started working out and I told the interviewer that I may no longer be interested in a switch and cancelled my interview.
They called me very persistent and presented this amazing opportunity asking to just meet with me and explain. Four interviews later I really started setting my mind and self up for a transition because of how amazing the offer looked.
Well yesterday I sat down with them and the offer changed drastically.. I renegotiated some of it, but I should have negotiated more. The new position is financially about the same now and not much better than my previous. The culture seems a little better and it has the potential to be great but that's just potential.
I told my previous employer that I was making a transition, and since it is to a competitor they ended everything immediately. I haven't signed the agreement with the new brokerage yet, but I have verbally agreed and am set to sign and start Monday.
Do I have any negotiation move here? Can I say that I'll sign this as long as we revisit in 6 months? Or am I screwed? I don't want them to pull the offer but I could go to a different brokerage it will just take some time to line them up.
I like the culture there so far, but I'm worried about how different the offer was from what we discussed. They said it will be based on my performance, and that they are hesitant to connect me to all of their clients until they see what I can do.
