At my agency it caps out at $160 I believe. Maybe $125-160. There’s a good chance we pay more than some other ipg agencies though.

Depending on what you're bringing to the table, you may have leverage to negotiate. Came in at $170k at IPG with a move package 3 years ago.

City? It would depend on the agency and your experience level. $110k to $125k in NYC seems right

My IPG agency has low salaries and abnormal title bands. Directors are comparable to managers / senior strategists at other agencies, I think. It depends ^

I was paid about $105 at McCann for that title

That is a lot higher than numbers I’ve heard recently! Network or independent?

Good looking out. Thanks!

I’ll add that if your strategy team leverages any analytics skill sets (up to and including advanced analytics or data manipulation) the director level bands are way too low for market conditions. Topping out around $160k sounds right from my experience.

I’ve been a Software Developer at FedEx for over 3 years, making 75k plus a small bonus of ~$6k. I’m fine with the lower salary because of the great work/life balance, but seeing how much others are making at similar companies makes me think I’m getting ripped off. I’d like to be making six figures, but am worried about work/life balance if I leave FedEx. Thoughts?
