I learnt digital Marketing and started Interning at this Media House in Mumbai.
I am in the Paid Media Team. They paid 7k as stipend. Now they gave me an offer letter as Media Executive, the role of client coordination and basically a beginner account Manager.
But they've offered a monthly salary of 12k. They said the max they can do is 15k.
The problem here is, I was under the impression that Media houses generally pay higher, but 15k is too less I believe.
I want to know your real thoughts

IMO. You should look for a better opportunity ASAP. You are gonna be severely underpaid, should you accept that offer. I started as a Fresher 4 years ago in Digital Marketing with a package of 22K in hand, on the other hand, the guys in the same profile as you ie Client Strategy/Client Servicing etc were at 30K in hand ( average ). So think carefully before accepting that offer.

I will recommend looking for alternatives as soon as possible, 12k is really low for that profile even if you are a fresher. To give some perspective, I know at Groupm Gurgaon, media planners with 6 months of internship experience were offered 4.5L CTC. Try to find jobs at one of the big 4 agencies. Plenty of openings these days and they provide a decent compensation.

Just to add on to my previous comment, media planners have the same role as client servicing, as you have already done an internship in digital marketing, go for entry level media planner roles.

I have a tricky timing for switching jobs.

Current company:
- Quarterly RSU vesting 1st March
- Bonus scheduled for April payment.
- Notice period is 1 month

Option 1. Leave on March 2nd after vesting and stay an extra month (2 months total). Start new role right after. No bonus

Option 2. Leave Feb 7th (1 months notice), start new job right after and ask new employer to cover the bonus and RSUs if they want me earlier

Option 3. Ignore the money and just leave after notice.

Thoughts?
