My last few, as I feel like I may be underpaid reading this thread and looking through the Google sheet Ad Twitter started? - $173k + up to 20% bonus based on company performance, 20 years exp, NYC (title above; brand side) - €100k, Planning Lead, 18 years exp, Berlin (small office, holding company agency) - $170k, VP/Group Director, Social Strategy, 15 years exp, NYC (huge office, big holding company agency) Am I so much lower than Creative & Account roles because of Strategy? Or do I need to get hella more aggressive in my negotiating??

Per my comment on your salary thread, I know I’m worth at least $230-$250k in NYC but I’m wondering if higher. As I’m beginning a job search, it would be an excellent time to fix that!

In house Marketing manager in high tech/scientific/ industrial markets, with an M.A. in digital marketing communications and 12 years marketing experience. I start a new position in a couple weeks, going from $72.5k USD/yr w/ unspecified profit sharing bonus (ranged from 2k to 10k, but not transparent as to how or why), 2 weeks PTO, health ins etc, and 100% 401k match to 3% in the Denver, CO area. Going to a similar title at a larger company @ $115k USD/yr w/ up to 15% performance bonus potential, fully remote, and 3 weeks PTO. Health ins. is comparable, 100% 401k match to 3% + 50% match to 5%

Additional tip - don’t show this to your boss and say “other people are getting paid this so I deserve it” that argument fails. Instead focus on “I bring x,y, and a to the table and that’s what makes me $x valuable” focus on what YOU bring, not what others have.

I was just gonna say that I’m prob underpaid since it was an internal jump vs. Switching agencies. But also Toronto salaries are much much lower than US. From what I’ve heard even seasoned AS don’t generally make more than $75k.

Starting a new role tomorrow at 100 as an AS. Honestly feels like I have spent the last almost 7 years fighting tooth and nail for myself, in every aspect- salary, toxic environments, harassment, manipulation and retribution... on and on and on. I told myself (and my father) at the start of the year, in the midst of yet another disappointment and another battle to be fought that I WOULD break six figures this year. I WOULD. We both said okay, but there was very little faith left to hold those words up. I was made an offer at 100 even- reading this thread, maybe I should’ve tried to negotiate or push a little more, but I was and am just TOO FREAKING STOKED to give it much thought. Still can’t believe it. Now just to find out how long that feeling lasts.. fingers crossed this is a good one in all the ways 🤞🏻Wish me luck!

I went from agency world to tech, so that's where the equity piece comes in...I don't immediately see it but there is a longer term pay off.

Worked with Coca-Cola, Turner Broadcasting, IBM, Coldplay, etc. Built social capabilities for two agencies, and built a marketing cloud capability for a global consultancy (Salesforce, social, marketing automation, email marketing, creative). Tons of new biz bringing in $$$$$$$ for my companies. My two brand side opps were also at very well known Fortune 50 companies. I worked and lived in Europe for 3+ years, in addition to having globally focused roles for 5+ years before (and currently). I recently hired someone to help me better sell myself as more executive-level in my resume but I don’t think I’ve nailed it yet. All excellent points — going to work on my resume today and aim for EVP type roles. 🙂 It’s hardest for me to reflect on how I portray myself and it’s bery helpful to get external thoughts. Thank you!
