CW salary at FB/Meta within the Creative X group? I keep seeing posts for copywriter positions that require 6 years of experience so I’m assuming even though they call it copywriter it’s more in line with senior / ACD agency salary.

Anyone have any idea what the salary range might be in Sweden for ACD / CD level? 👀

I got interviewed for a role in a different group at my current agency, and it went great. But it’s taking like forever to negotiate a salary (I pushed back and asked for a bit more over a month now). Every time I ask about the status, they say, “we’ll get back to you soon.” At this point, I feel they’ll go with a lower-salary candidate. So, If you’re looking for an experienced ACD/Art in NYC, hit me up. I think it’s time to look for other opportunities outside my company.

So, I know W+K does the whole "flat structure" thing by titling anyone below CD as a "creative." How does this affect salary ranges? Are they proportional to the range you'd get outside as a Jr./Sr./ACD? Lower?

I'm a Sr & my cw is mid level, I have 2 more yrs of experience. We've been partners for 2 yrs and we're interviewing at an agency that doesn't have Jr,mid,Sr & are really precious about acd title, likening them to CDs.

At other places we've talked to we'd get respective promotions and raises but this agency wants to bring us in as a senior team. We don't have the same salary now and I'd feel a bit stiffed if they offer us the same salary.

Am I an asshole for feeling this way? Wwyd?

I had first and second round interviews for a specific role at a company—and even discussed salary range with the recruiter during first round—then I get an email from the recruiter saying the SVP and ACD I interviewed with loved me and thought I’d be a great fit, and that she’d be in touch when a position opens up that matches my skills and level. Has anyone ever had something like this happen? I’m so confused, because the role was for my skills and level.
