Highly paid for 4 years experience. Nicely done.

Did you join the ad game late?

Yes I joined late. Does the discipline matter for pay in this industry or it’s all about years of industry experience? I would assume planners/buyers are paid differently in scale compared to creatives or data analytics folks, right?

I don’t find I am paid too high but just right. For some things I know more than people with higher titles than me but I’m comfortable climbing at my own pace and being paid appropriately along the way.

D&A is probably on the higher side of those mentioned, but again, it depends on what you do.

Hello Fishes,
An urgent query as I have to respond to an offer letter by EOD today.
May I know what is the coverage amount for Domiciliary / hospitalisation / life cover for SCON. I went through the offer but not able to locate anywhere. Called HR and they say that they will get back by Monday next week. And in that case, they will re-send offer.
I highly doubt, that if offer lapses, they would re-extend it.
Could you please help me out with the query.

Instead of buying a second home right now, I’m thinking of renting a small place in another city in a cool, urban development. Instead of peace and quiet, it would be fun to have more access to restaurants and city activities before buying a country retirement home where the grandkids can come and spread out. Has anyone done this? It sounds like fun, though throwing money away on rent vs building equity makes me a little uncomfortable.

Is pharma work at the lower level (thinking 2-4 years experience) really paid that well? I always hear pharma is where the money is at and I've got some student loans I'd like to pay off, but when I look around here I'm seeing only $70k for junior-mid...which doesn't seem like much more than a regular agency. Is the money just in the higher positions? Is it worth a hopefully-temporary switch to pay the bills early on?

I’m pretty positive I’m close to getting an offer for an in house ACD role at a fintech company. The recruiter said it’d be 167k base with about 61k in equity for a total yearly comp of around 228k. I’m new to equity in an offer and would love some advice on if I should negotiate for more or less on both base or equity, and what equity really means from a pro and con point of view. Any and all thoughts would be much appreciated! 🙏🏼
