I think I'll sleep better by doing the right thing even if I'm falling on my sword to do so.

Best Regards,

Mike

Gene is usually right about these things, and he's been in a management position, so he has probably encountered such problems. But if I were in your shoes, I'd be worried about my stand on principle alienating your client. If they get involved in the battle between the agencies, they might not choose you to work for them over a "less complicated" competitor in the future (even though it's not your fault).

And you don't know the dynamic between the individuals in the offending agency and the people in the corporation. For all you know,, they are buddies on the outside. Probably not, but you have to realize there is a lot you don't know.

I would suck it up and accept the offending agency's offer for as long as the contract runs (hopefully not too long), but then never work through them again.

But only you know whether pulling their submission might cause you trouble in the future. Good luck, it's a rough situation.

Also, this is a good argument for picking one or two agencies you
work well with and sticking with them, even if another offers you
a better rate. Long term relationships usually work out better
than playing the field.
