Is 120k a good comp for an Account Director (8yrs experience) role in NYC at a medium sized agency part of a huge holding?

No. That seems low to me

I have very similar tenure to you and make 10% more than that in Atlanta. It’s within range but you can absolutely push for more.

Damn I’m underpaid in Atlanta. Is your agency hiring?

I’d say it’s below average-to-average. Same experience here and I just crossed that threshold

Mainly recruiter overtures. Your strategy makes sense and I am trying to do that but seems unlikely I’ll get two offers to line up time wise. 130-140 seems reasonable, no?

Seems low to me. Are they offering a bonus?

Unclear. I try to assume they’re not and to push for the high end of the average base salary range.

it’s average. that’s exactly what I made with 8 yrs exp. also depends on how many years you’ve been a director. i made that as my first director job now I have 12 years exp and make $200.

It’s within the range but low. I’ve been interviewing for AD roles and asking for $150. Would gladly take $150, probably pass on $125.

I’m in a smaller market, just under 100k with 15 years experience, so this is comforting.

If anyone wants to join a boutique HR & Talent Advisory consulting firm, Kincentric is hiring for an Associate Partner role! Location doesn’t really matter, but preferably in IL, NY, or ATL.
