Does anyone really think the role of CCO, GCD, CD and even ACD is necessary anymore? How about just people that do actual work collaborating and doing great work? Take those inflated positions and hire more creatives that do work or pay the ones who do it more money. In my experience, eliminating those positions never made the work suffer. In fact it’s a more streamlined process.

I’m an ACD in NYC making 160k. 10 yr of experience. Another agency reached out to me about the same role. How much more can I ask for? There’s no reason for me to jump if the money isn’t much better.

The only role that seems worse than ACD is ECD. Is it just me or do those folks look miserable?

$125k for an ACD role in NY is bogus, right? Need some guidance for negotiations.

Got offer for a new ACD role in NYC. I’m excited about the gig, but feel lowballed on salary (130k + relo). I previously gave a desired range of 160-170k and would love advice on how to push for it!

I’m anticipating 2 offers and need some opinions. A) ACD role @ not exciting agency doing potentially great work, significant commute. B) AD role in house at a great company. Minimal commute. Both SF.

I’m an ACD in NY making $160k. I’m now considering a role at a big Chicago agency. What’s an appropriate salary? I assume it’ll be less, since it’s a lower cost of living. Thanks.

Sr. Copywriter/ACD vs ACD, Copywriter The former means we are going to pay you at a Sr copywriter rate. The latter says we are going to pay you at an ACD rate. Former says you will grow into this role. Latter says you are this role. Agree?
