Got promoted from Director to Senior Director. While I did get a pay bump (from 200k to 230k base salary), I wanted to get a gut check from this group to know if the number sounds reasonable?

Average internal promotion raise is usually 6-10%, that’s almost a 20% raise which is amazing especially given the economy and that the % usually decreases the higher your base pay.

Thanks for your insight!

15% pay increase for an internal promotion is the most you can get at many places. Nice work!

Yeah, it sounds like someone really fought for you. Not saying you aren’t worth more, but that speaks highly of you. Congrats!

Depends on the place. Are you working for a large agency owned by a holding company? If so, sounds like a lowball number.

Honestly, I don’t really know. But if your total annual compensation can be 300k+, then I’m guessing you’re doing something right.

Wow, I think that’s a great increase. Congrats. I know it’s industry dependent, but what do we think is the base salary range for a director of brand marketing vs senior director? $200k for director is high from my experience but maybe I’m underpaid.
