Good NYC agency with good people & brands (have freelanced there a ton, but I don’t want to move) looking for a CD/CW, 10+yrs experience, salary range $200-225k, ideally someone already in NYC...msg me if you’re a good fit/want more info. They asked me to screen books so I won’t 100% pass you on—sorry—but want to share as many great 🐠 candidates as possible!

Do you negotiate salary as a AD/CW team or individually? This is my first time jumping ship with a partner, we've talked about it between us, I definitely lean towards a higher number than my partner. Wondering if we should work it out between us or go in separately. Thanks.

I'm up for a pharma agency senior CW role in the Rx/HCP vertical. I have been freelancing for 11 years, so mostly contract rates between $50 and $80 p/h (lower end on W2, higher 1099). They want to know my 1099 rate and salary requirements if full-time employee. Would $75 hourly and $110K be within range? They are in Philadelphia. I have been working in the Chicago, San Fran, and NYC markets mostly.

PARTNERS: two questions —1. If you see an associate has really low hours for the month, do you imagine them chillen on a beach somewhere or do you consider they probably spent most of their days sitting in front of the computer being “available”? 2. If you send an associate a random e-mail on a weekend like “Can you pull X and send to Y”, would you get annoyed if they responded saying they weren’t by a comp or would you consider it reasonable that they wouldn’t be by a comp on a weekend?
