The answer is going to range greatly, depending on many factors…

When you say “in-house agency” do you mean like Essence or AQUENT Studios (where it’s outsourced but seen as extension of the in-house team)? Or are you talking about the internal brand marketing team?

What size and stage company, and we talking B2B or B2C?

It **might** also depend on where you’re located and what your title and duties are (people managing vs copywriting full-time)…

For agencies providing in-house resources, not sure about Essence but AS pays way lower (like sr. would be “lucky” to get 100k 😡). So lame… I know some do pay better but being in-house will almost always come with a higher salary…

Internal marketing team, not an extension

Not quite the same, but I left a Senior Content Writer position for a Midwest tech company about 7 years ago because I was only making $60k. I left for an ACD copy position with an agency for considerably more.

I notice that when women and people of color raise issues… basically saying they are experiencing bias, microgressions, and straight up racism at work, they always have to say that they “know” it’s “not intentional” or “unintentional”. It’s almost like they can’t initiate the discussion without adding that caveat so that they’re not attacked… It seems like it’s really important to protect the feelings of the perpetrators.
