Thanks you guys. Salary is such a controversial topic but how else will you know what to push for? Really appreciate it.

Thanks for posting, this was helpful.

Roughly three years ago I started at exactly $100k but I would certainly aim higher.

95-100k

Agreed with the others

Depends where since the titles change, but generally ADs start at 100k. If you have a year under you belt you could get $125k. ADs in most places cap out at 150/160.

What J. Walter Thompson 1 said is accurate. Your first AD gig is around $95-100K for sure.

$100-110K. I would never take an AD role for less than 6 figures.
