Salaries

I’m a junior CW interviewing at saatchi LA soon, have a little more than a year’s experience, ad school background and some awards. Any idea what salary range should I be asking for?

I’d imagine $70-75ish. And if you’re good enough to get more, work somewhere that isn’t Saatchi LA.

Not necessarily. In LA juniors tend to get $50-60k out of school. And if this person has a year of experience and awards, it seems reasonable. And LA absolutely pays like a big market. I made $150k last year prior to going freelance, which is pretty competitive for a senior anywhere as far as I know.

“With some awards.” Kewl Do you not understand awards mean nothing? We all have them.

Curious, why would you leave NYC for saatchi la? unless it's to work on the Olympics stuff, not worth it imo. very nice ppl there but unless you're dying to get automotive in your book, I'd hold out since you have awards.

Looking an affordable (<$100) leather band watch watch with a simple face. For a man, not looking to say “I’m rich” but “functional and tasteful.” Worn with grey suits and biz-casual. Thanks for recs!
