I feel like I’m in a virtual cubicle separated from the creative team. I don’t get much context about anything I’m working on, I just get pulled on and it’s just comp this, find that, etc. I don’t even know when the meetings are, I’ve had to ask repeatedly to be put on them and to get the briefs, I’m at the point where I feel like I’m annoying them. I’m 2 months new on this team and had a lot more responsibility at my previous gig...

I've been offered CD position within my small agency. Used to have an ECD but didnt re-up contract. I was already running the creative team of 12. Any ideas what I should be getting for salary?

Currently I am a senior producer at a small creative agency (previously senior producer at very large agency for 5 years) and 8 years experience total. Current salary is $110k. I am being promoted to EP/HOP and being offered $120k. Understand the economy and the industry isn’t doing too well (and thankful to have a job) but seems like not a lot for so much added responsibility. Thoughts on ways to negotiate up or what a fair pay increase would be?

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?
