Started a new job where no one I interviewed with told me I would be the only producer on a launch brand. I’m running 50+ projects by myself while there are 6 account people. How do I tell my manager I am doing more than my job description and I need a raise/promotion in title? I started less than two months ago

Do you think it hurts my chances during the job interview process if I’m married with children? When I was a more junior producer I was told marriage and kids would ruin my career as a producer by several older generation EPs—so, I’m feeling self conscious now that I have kids and am married and am interviewing. Is this true? Should I hide the fact that I’m married with kids when I interview?

Hi there, I’m about to have an interview at a large tech company (similar to that of google and Facebook but more software driven), and I was curious about what the salary range can be like for an in-house agency producer (mid-level). Glassdoor is saying it could anywhere between $100k-$140k per year at their competitor companies. That’s such a wide range and I’m not sure how accurate that is. Does anyone have a better idea of what to expect?

ISO production partner for a few internal-facing videos for a spirits client of mine. need a director/producer+post (though those can be different partners!). it’ll essentially be a talking head interview + a mixologist creating a cocktail in a bar or studio space, NYC area is best. catch is that because these are internal, we’re looking to keep it lean and around/under $50k. does anyone have a recommendation for partner(s) or sound like something you’d be a good fit for?
