This is why people jump ship. If agencies were truly worried about people or retention they'd get rid of this silly policy that has plagued our industry.

yes, internal promotions normally get paid less than external hires bc they have less leverage.

PM1 - You can't negotiate a raise in the publicis family. You get a number that took months for France to approve and you accept it. You then use that to get a different job outside 💩

@LB1. I'm thinking the exact thing. Especially since I do the exact work as my senior and now I know she makes 33% more than me.

For a senior associate? Ugh, that's awful. And senior associates often do more work than supervisors, since the job involves managing and still doing the bottom heavy stuff. Smh.

Ha. Senior associates at starcom only get $48k. It is the minimum amount they had to pay them in case that over time law went into effect.

You should always negotiate your raise. Every position is a range. Not all internal are $51K and not all external are $57K.

That's ridiculous. I can't think of any other industry that does this. Everyone knows it's cheaper to retain talent. No wonder advertising is always broke. Smh.

@leoburnout2 : untrue. Myth they tell you. Raises dont go through Paris, or maybe for agencies struggling financially.

OP, I know the feeling. I got promoted to manager a few months ago and found out my AE (new hire) makes a few grand more than me. -_-

At what point does the value of a degree fall off? I'm in my early 30s, and have five years of experience, and work on a very theoretically interesting project. I believe I'm on track to promotion in the next year. So, I could put in a year of full time school to check the box off, but I'd be sacrificing hobbies and social life (not to mention cost). Is this FOMO or is there real opportunity here?
