I work for a small startup and just got a $3k “market rate adjustment” raise on my $112k salary. I was informed that this was due to the market rate for product design doing worse this year than last year, in addition to the company basing salaries on the average pay for senior product designers in “the whole US outside of major cities”. Even so, this seems low to me and I just want to get a sanity check. Should I negotiate?

NYC based with 4.5 YOE in design, 2.5 in product design.

A lot of people got nothing or laid off this year. A few years ago $3k would feel super low but not right now.

Hi everyone
Is it okay to try for multiple offers for getting the best offer with the best company?

It's my 2nd Switch, during the 1st switch I didn't try multiple offers I joined the first offered company. Because I got a good hike and I settled.

But now also I got a good offer but according to the current market standards companies are willing to pay more

How should I handle multiple offers and how to convey to the companies when I decided not to join them after all negotiations.

Thanks

The production budgets range from roughly 200k-500k per shoot depending on how many days it is. I get paid 75k yearly which is feeling pretty low when I do the math. Is that fair?

I had a really weird interview for Creative Director today.

It’s a small startup. HR interviewed me and asked all the hard hitting questions (how do you get design inspiration, how do you deal with design roadblocks, what sets you apart for this role?) which I thought was odd for a screening interview.

They made some affirmative noises then said the next step would be a design test (one pager) which I would present to a panel of interviewers including the CMO.
Anyone else think this is odd?
