I recently applied for a Technology Support and Product management Associate role at a tech-enabled dairy processing company even though I know I'm more experience than an Associate level. I scaled through the first round of interviews and had a second interview with the founder and passed the assessment as well and got offered the role.
However, the compensation is just way too low for me to accept. Its taking me two salary scales back and not really offering anything in terms of career progression so I feel like I'm losing two ways. They have said that the salary range cant be changed at the time but that I will have a review in 6 months with a potential increase but have also opened up an opportunity to pitch for a more senior role with more responsibility and scope.
They really haven't set expectations for what that role is or what it would look like so I'm really struggling for what to add especially as I feel like I already shared everything with the founder when we had a conversation.
