Account Management

Any Chicago fishies who went from account sup to a brand manager role? What are the main differences of the job? Preference between the two? Which salary/perks are better? Considering the jump.

I tried for years but couldn’t make it happen. Now currently happy where I’m at. But salary is definitely way better client side. Associate Brand Manager typically starts around $90k and up to probably around $105 or $110k. Brand manager roles are probably $120k and up. At least based on my research from several years ago.

Brand management (on the client side) typically requires a graduate degree as you’re managing a P&L and responsible for all aspects of the product, not just the media and advertising.

Has anyone left Big 4 to go independent with current client? My current client offered me a full time role but I want to come in as an independent consultant. I’d save them money and think they’d go for it. I’d use it as my first client and look to try my own consulting business. It’s always been my dream and I don’t see myself going through the ringer to make partner although I respect folks who do a ton. Just not for me. Too much mental health issues already. Can’t add that stress.

How do headhunters / recruiters ghost you after you’ve invested time interviewing with a firm? I just don’t understand. They can’t possibly get to the interview stage with that many people for a role where they can’t take the time to send a sorry, we selected another candidate message. Like cmon, we’ve taken the time to prep, carved out time in busy schedules, and become emotionally invested as well lol

I’m surprised so many of you want to “exit to FAANG” - I find Facebook/Amazon/Google to be pretty despicable companies - Apple has questionable moral standards when it comes to making their products, Netflix seems like the best of the bunch.
