How much of a salary bump to ask for after a promotion from ACD to CD? For context, I’m an ACD making $170k in NYC with 8-9 years experience. This is my first ACD gig. My boss keeps saying things about how I’ll get a CD gig elsewhere in the next year or two and start making $250k, but that he’ll try to keep me here. So would it be safe for me to ask for $250k to become a CD at my current gig? I don’t expect them to match it exactly, but get close.

I've heard first time CDs are in the 200-210 range, possibly even 190 if you're not running an account. If your boss was the one who floated the 250k, why not try holding him to his words 😂 I bet it's outta his control tbh.

that’s the plan! going to ask for $250 and hope he meets me somewhere around $215-225 😂

Depends on the market and the agency. But typically if youre being promoted from acd to cd internally (especially in a holding co agency) they will low ball you massively. Push for as much as you can get, but be prepared for them to try to make you work for 200k.

I went from 175 as ACD to 200 as CD. Internal promotion.

Same

From what I’ve seen/heard, 200k-225k might be a more common wheelhouse for first time CD’s. I personally made 190k my first year.

I’d be pretty stoked with $225k! Good to know, thanks

In a similar situation. Making the jump from ACD to CD. Making 140 now in NYC. Think I’ll be massively lowballed. How much should I hope/ask for?

If same company, 200. Different agency, ask for 225

If your boss is discussing it with you, they appreciate you. Ask for the $250k but expect $215-225k but ask for a bonus/signing bonus and anything else that will make you feel better about your job.
