With that experience, go for more. I’m a mid level getting close to 100 here in LA. Go get ‘em girl!

Get that paper. 7 yrs... my gut say you should be making more like 120.

I find myself thinking that I don’t want to pique too early—that I should keep future growth in mind. And then I wonder if that’s just the estrogen talking and I need to be more of a shark.

You won't make over $105 as a Sr cw in la unless you're 1) super senior as a FL 2) work at a small shop 3) have awards like one show, d&ad or Cannes 4) come from a pedigree shop that can make pr headlines for the agency like w+k or goodby etc. Also, it's a great time to be a woman or POC in creative; use it to your benefit if you fit one of those criteria. Agencies are all trying to get 3% qualified right now and balance out the over abundance of white males in creative. Good luck!

I think you can make it by just jumping around. I was at 135 as a senior writer in LA.

I have had several rounds of interviews for a role at Visa London office.

TBH, that round seemed as if they want to make sure I have understood the job well. And there has been radio silence after that. Any idea how to read this? I have another offer and deliberating if i should just accept that.
