Creatives

If a recruiter says the role they're offering for a senior creative role is 150k+, how far up should I go? 160? 170?

150+ for senior?? As in, SENIOR senior not ACD? Take me with you.

They are offering you what they think you are worth. There is no guide to salaries in this biz. It’s very much about talent, supply, demand and actual job role. A pharma job will offer more bc it’s hard. A creative agency job will do the same if it’s a good opp and you have a good book. There is no guide. If 150 is ok with you, go on the interview, if you get offered the job (and you’re actually into it), ask for 10-15k more. That’s how it works. Hope this helps

Seriously? In my market, seniors range from $80K-$110K. What market are you in?

Yeah I got 145 as a senior in SF. It happens in the bigger (pricey) markets. I don’t think you’ll get up to the 160s though. That’s ACD space in SF.

Lol I love how everyone is freaking out. I make $150k (7 years exp) in house in sf , non tech. Tech offers are min $160k base. I say go for $170k and see what you get back! Hopefully you have another offer to use as leverage too.

Tech in-house in SF pays about that much.

Ya it depends on what market mostly. Always say no to an "open creative" working space and if you see any words like "family" or "culture" thats a big red flag buddy.

Not my first, but I’m scared. Probably good time to save up and invest more into crypto.

I don't do finance, accounting, or auditing. 90%+ of recruiters on LinkedIn reach out for those roles bc PwC is my employer. Anyone removed the PwC name just to get relevant opportunities?

Seems like a lot of DDs get started at the end of the year (esp. relative to other cases), anyone know why? I’m thinking it might have to do with taxes but not sure. Any PIPE people know?
