Been offered a job in-house. For a tech brand. Could go from a MW salary to an ACD salary overnight. Marketers are all ex-agency, have big ambitions for the work. They have brand partners so briefs wouldn’t all be for 1 brand. Is it worth it this early on in my career? I’d also get stock options on top of huge salary increase.

For me, it all depends on the agency you’re at now, and who you’re working under. If you’ve currently got the opportunity to be mentored and/or make work then consider growing in your craft. If not, take the opportunity. But bear in mind the lifestyle creep that will inevitably happen on a better wage. It will make it harder to go back agency side. If you do move; stay honest with yourself. Are your creative standards dropping? Are the opportunities to write good work diminishing?

Go client side!

Let’s be honest, work quality might go down and you wouldn’t be attractive or make networking with agencies for future. Do you want to come back to agencies? So it’s ok in case you already have good work on your book, awards, etc and can stay one year or two doing not so cool stuff. Our main goal in life is be happy and get paid, and in house job must have better work life balance. For salary ask as much you can, don’t think about your salary jump. Think about what the position pays.

Struggling with an offer I got for an industry position. The base undervalues me, raises are low, but total comp is higher than I would get this year with my raise if I stayed (although it couldn’t compete with my expected comp next year). I’ll have better WLB, which I really need for various reasons, but so scared to give up everything I know and that the hiring company was putting on a show during the interview process.
