Early in your career I think 2 years is a good average. As a mid-level probably 3-4 years. Once you get to a Director level it’s likely 5+. There are only so many levels in an agency and you can’t have everyone with the highest title and salary.

Agreed with account director 1, though I will say you should also consider whether you’re ready for the workload the promoted role entails. I’ve seen a lot of promotions where the person was not ready for the role but felt that because of longevity, that they deserved it

Why do people on here insist on chasing great “leaders” and not brands you enjoy? Most ECDs and VPs suck anyhow and don’t offer anything that I can’t learn from experience. Why would I want my book filled with work/brands that don’t represent the kind of brands I want to work on or enjoy?

Creatives: many jobs I see for CDs ask for one to create strategies, identify channels, and a lot of other (important) tasks of the process that are anything but coming up with the creative idea, or crafting the words or art that express that idea. I often see them for in-house roles. I’ve mostly worked at places where specialists perform each of those functions. Just a different breed of CD? Surely we can’t all be expected to roll that way?
