I asked for a raise as a junior after 6 months (9 months total including my internship) because 1) I'd just helped my agency with a couple awards, and 2) BBDO was trying to poach me. My company said that now wasn't a good time financially for them but that they valued me and told me to ask again in 6 months. I loved my agency and it was small, so I did. Got a $1k bonus, but was denied again. Ended up leaving them a year later after no progress, and on my last day found out my account strategist coworker was making twice as much as me. It doesn't hurt to ask, and know when you're being taken advantage of!

As a Jr, after a year. Unless you've been crushing it on New Business pitches and then I'd say 9 months.

Having been one, I'm pretty sure junior strategists have the most inflated view of their worth of anyone in an agency. Focus on your work, making your boss look good and forming relationships with creative/account partners, and the money will come.

I just started at a new company 2 months ago with the expectation of having 3-4 people on my team. However, my team size will be increasing to 7. I don’t really want to rock the boat so early at my new job especially since I’m still in the “drinking from the firehose” phase, but this is going to be a significant increase in responsibility. We only have pay review in January of each year. Would it be crazy to ask about a raise later this month?

I’m curious what the opinions are on the process they have seen or used to get promoted. I’ve never had it happen in my career this way but in my mind, your work speaks for itself, you advocate for yourself, ask for a promotion when it’s not been offered. Then you get promoted after you make your case if you do qualify. The way I’ve seen it (& a reason I’m leaving my current company) is where they only promote people when they’ve threatened to leave or received a different offer. Thoughts?
