I’d ask for 140 and see if they blink

Try not to give the first number. Tell them it depends on the opportunity or ask what the salary band is. Or find some other way to demur. Then go in knowing why you want the job. Are you looking to get into Health because it gives you a longer runway career wise? Are you already in Health and want more money? Is it about the chance to make more/better work? That should help you decide how much you want to push on money. But the background is that Health agencies typically can’t find people with the right qualifications. And the creatives they do have can get other jobs really easily if they have any relevant experience at all. Some shops have literally 20+ jobs to fill in creative right now. There are tons of general agency experienced creatives who need jobs but they’re too expensive to train up for what these agencies need. So even if you’re not in a Health agency now, they obviously think you may fit. Good luck. Sorry if you knew all that.

I pay Senior Art Directors between $90-115K. If they’re asking for $120K and above that’s ACD territory for our agency.

Hello! I have an inital call with HR coming up for a non-technical program manager role and I’m anticipating the expected total comp question. I’m coming from a non-tech background so I’m not sure what would be reasonable. Not sure what L level this role would be (it’s titled just Program Manager). Role would be in the Bay Area (currently live in DC). I’ve got 10 YOE, mostly in the government (3 in consulting). Any insight would be helpful!

I’d be taking about a 10% pay cut compared to IB but progression to roles with carry is open.
