I'm starting a new job at a technology firm as a full-time Senior Product Designer, and it will be my first job within a clientbased environment.

I've already gotten information on the first client-project I will be working on, and I'm not sure how pay should be calculated? I'll have my base salary, but will pay/compensation also be coming from the client on top of that? How should I ask this/who is it okay to ask in the company?

I’m not sure I understand your question. Are you asking if you get a cut from what the client pays your firm?

Thanks for asking for clarification, I feel like I got my answer from the other person's response. I wasn't too sure how to word it since it's all new.

If I’m understanding your question properly, and “client-based” just means an agency or firm instead of in-house, then your base pay is all you get. Especially if your offer letter or contract doesn’t mention any type of additional compensation or commission.
The only time I’ve heard of getting extra client-based compensation on top of salary is if you specifically brought the client in and your company has a deal/finders fee for that. But again, that would be in your contract.

No problem! I could be wrong, but since you’re asking this I’m guessing that your offer/base pay at this place is lower than you were expecting? Hence you wondering if there might be more from the client. I’ve always heard that agency jobs just pay less than in-house positions do, sadly.

Either way, best of luck at the new position! I hope you love it. I’ve always preferred the agency life and constantly having new clients to work with.

A month ago I was given a promotion w/o a raise, and my new responsibilities were announced to the whole office. I’ve been persistent in following up to discuss salary and it’s always a song and dance about “benchmarking exercises”. The latest is that they “may” be able to offer 4-5% since it’s “a promotion but not a level change”… but no sense of timing commitment and frankly, less money than I know I’m worth. Really like the work but it’s crushing me. Any last ditch negotiation ideas?
