The numbers check out. But the years of experience on a few of these surprise me.

Are these years in the industry or years with that title, though? If it’s just years in the industry, boy do I feel dumb. I should be CCO by now.

Man I’m at the wrong agency, then. I feel like my current employer is suppressing the careers of everyone without CD in their title....

Agree with that, a more “modest” salary but an incentive to get in there and help make a difference seems like it creates more pride. Would be cool if every employee had that, even at a much smaller incentive. Would create an incentive to take every brief as seriously as the last.
