non-negotiable? Sounds like they definitely think they are dealing from a position of strength.

If this is all you could get it would be worth it for the first few years just to get the experience you need to get another job or go solo.

If I were closer to the area I would consider applying to that. It's more than I make at my shitty law clerk jerb right now.
