Well, this really depends on your market, and whether or not you switch jobs. I’ll assume NYC. You should not expect an annual raise. Doesn’t happen. You should expect a raise with promotion. Although that unfortunately doesn’t always happen. If you’re at 40K now as am AE (not AAE) you’re already at the lowest end of the spectrum ($40K to $60K for an AE). Unfortunately, you’ll never get much more than a 15% (maybe 20% absolute tops) raise internally. But let’s assume you’re able to get more. At Senior AE you should push for at least a $10K jump. So $50K. You should be in that position for a minimum of 12 months. Most likely 18 at least, before promoted to AS. That range is $60K to $90K. You’ll prob be at the lower end if you stay at your current place. Fun fact - this is why the AS position has the highest turnover rate in Acct Mgmt. Then comes Management Sup. Realistic range is $90K to $120K. Minimum 18 to 24 months in that role - and that’s if you’re a total badass. Then Account Director, $115K to $170K. Wide range, as this will be a number of years for most people before moving up. 3-5 years for most. Can keep going, but I’ve got you mapped out for at least the next 6 or 7 years. Hope this helps!

Have anyone done contracting negotiations before? I've interviewed for co A & B and co A extended an offer today. The offer does not meet my current salary. Co B's interview structure is 3 rounds and I've finished my 2nd round today. The recruiter mentioned that since I am a contractor my current salary is incomparable as they will provide benefits, etc. Is this true? I have 2 yrs of contracting HR exp from fortunate 500 co’s & OMW to get my SHRM-CP. Appreciate your advice in advance.
