I am a full time AD at an agency expecting pay cuts, I was just offered a part time remote job in house elsewhere. Pay is double my current salary. Can I do both jobs, assuming there is no conflict?

Anyone have a recent Canadian ad salaries survey they can share? Or the APG Canada Salary Survey that still hasn’t been shared publicly yet? Worked to the bone and underpaid, and since no one seems to be hiring planners atm, trying my best to get paid (at least closer to) what I’m worth and any evidence of salary bands per title helps. Thanks

Job ad: requires 10 years of experience 5 of them as a C-level executive, must manage 30+ people and 9 subcontractors across 7 time zones, must have coded the actual moon landing and have sick DJing skills, will need to shepherd the entire nation of Finland into the arms of Jesus, SQL guru, experience speaking to humans. Also job ad: comp range is $50K-$65K and you will need to feed the chickens out of your own pay. Generous health benefits including bandaids for purchase.

What’s the average salary for an AD in NYC with slightly less than 2 years of experience as a junior? And yes I’ve seen that massive spreadsheet but while it does say years of experience, it doesn’t say if that salary came along with the title bump or additionally as a raise after.

Favouritism? I got screwed over, paired with another art director. Same job title, salary, started at the same time. After doing good work together, I won awards individually, turned down a job offer to stay in this company...was let go and it turned out my cd who dealt with my pay etc and decided where briefs went had never raised the job I turned down with management, I was earning less and he had been giving the good opportunities to the other junior ad. Ended in me getting a pay off...
