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?

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.

I’ll soon be leaving my senior role at a big agency for an ACD role at a smaller agency. I’m not exactly sure how this change will affect my day-to-day work. Anything I should know and prepare for?
