I’m in NYC as a project manager at a WPP agency. 25 yr/Female/$90k salary. Thinking of moving to California (either LA or SF). What location/job title/career move etc would be best for me and why?

Sounds like I should have gone the Project Management route

If you are making $90K as a 25 year old PM, I would instead recommend going down the entrepreneurship route and starting a project management firm and outsource PMs to other companies. Your rate will scale more and it is more fulfilling.

WPP is pretty good with internal transfers. You should search within the network to see what you might find. Then when you get to LA or SF see how it goes. LA will pay less than SF and NY SF will not necessarily pay you better than NY Sounds though that you have a good foundation and role that is transferable. Good luck!

Out of curiosity, OP, how many years of experience for that price?

2.5 years - I negotiate hard.

A male colleague of mine, who just joined the team this week, has made inappropriate advancements towards me during a team event, touching my leg while talking to me and saying how pretty I am.

What steps should I take first? Report to HR immediately or speak to my team’s partner first? Any advice is appreciated

In these times, if your referral bonus is $1k or less for seasonal employees you are asking for: 1. Employees who put in work to refer people that end up negotiating a part time option don't work on referring anyone else. 2. If the potential new hire gets an offer, employees have 0 incentive to convince them to accept it. This can even lead to them giving negotiation tips which get the new hire a $5-10k higher offer. They may even recommend accepting a diff firm's offer straight up.
