When external recruiters work on commission, meaning that they're only paid if a candidate they've introduced is hired, will they try to pressure me into accepting any offer I receive, even if I don't think it's right for me?
If the recruiter is part of the negotiating process, should I be worried that I won't be able to negotiate well or be pushed into accepting a low-ball offer?
Note to head off duplicate votes: this question was inspired by "Are recruiters incentivized to pressure you into accepting contracts?", which I originally misinterpreted, hence this self-answered question. That question discusses contract positions versus full-time work so this is not a duplicate.
