Currently on a contract, many teammates were let go including manager. Due to layoffs, we have 3 available headcounts for less experienced people at a lower T level. I qualify for these positions and my contract is ending soon, however, instead of extending an offer, the new manager wants me to renew my contract for a year and instead is not considering me for the 3 available headcounts that have just opened. (We haven't had a headcount opportunity the whole 2 years I've been on the team). To be honest, I love what I do, but at this time I really need the financial security and benefits of FTE.
Do I give an ultimatum? Other teams are hiring and have reached out to me, what can I do without burning any bridges?
