@OP, I think first off is, what is the structure of the entity you're talking to?

Is it a firm that has a full-service or digital agency in its roster (eg Accenture Song, Deloitte Studio)?

Or is it a consultancy that is building out a marketing-oriented portfolio that requires a robust creative team to service clients as part of a larger integrated offering?

The former will probably be run like most agencies you've worked at. The latter not necessarily so.

Salaries, in my experience, are a function of the work being done/sold-- consultancies will pay you more than the average agency, but by how much depends on how critical you are to their overall offerings....and not all agency creatives are that useful
