Interviewing with an agency in NYC, but I’ve never worked in that market, so I’d love some guidance. Nearly 5 years experience. Working at an accomplished place right now. Have several awards. What should be the LOWEST number I accept in a negotiation? This isn’t a big holding company shop, so I’m trying to prepare what realistically could be the lowest I go.

OK very good to know, thank you. To be honest, I was holding $100k in my head as a good, round number to put as a floor. But I wasn’t sure how feasible that was.

Really good to know! Thank you, ACD!

I’d say 100k is a reasonable floor.

OK great! That’s very helpful, thanks. I was thinking that, but really wasn’t sure.

Have you ever quit a job and began your new job just to realize it is not what you were expecting? I’m at a new company and I completely hate it.
