Today, I got my verbal full-time offer (good salary + bonus) downgraded to temp-to-perm, with a 6-month review, after a day of my giving them references to contact.

Needless to say, I'm a bit disappointed and asked for a bit of time to decide. I have until the end of this week to give them an answer, as they claim that there is another candidate whom they might offer my position to, if I decline.

How should I proceed? Should I try and negotiate?

It's a strong company with great earnings, so I know they're not short on cash (it's not a start-up). However, I'm unsure now whether I would fit in well with the manager and his group, given my status of temp-to-perm, when originally I was discussing a direct hire offer.
