5 months into my first job. Been given a lot of responsibilities here. Rose from intern, to Jr, to Jr with actual responsibilities leading pitches and overseeing production and all that stuff that I didn't think I'd ever get to do in my first year. I like my CD a lot, they're awesome and a real mentor. Most coworkers are pretty meh but I like some of them. Salary is awful. I've received an offer from a competing agency here...

25 y/o. Been working for a startup for 2.5 years after graduating undergrad in 2017. Started as an intern. Salary for the first 2 years went from $55K to $78K. Now I’m at $95K and scheduled for a promotion to associate, salary expected to be $120-140K. I have no idea where I’m at in terms of relations to market (salary and progression)... can anyone at a BB help me out?
