190 is more than fair... but you may not get that. 190/ 200 at the moment is about right for a first year CD.

Hiring is hot for certain roles. I don’t see ACD and CD openings as “hot”... at least not at the good ad agencies. You have too many creatives trying to get in and not enough spots. If you wanna go client side or in-house, sure there’s lots more openings and $ to go around.

Um, yes. Ogilvy doesn’t pay that, and especially not to women.

I make 180 as a CD in NYC( but i have a few less years experience than most CDs) ....190 is gunna be a lot for an ACD if they aren’t hiring you as a CD.

How many years of experience?

Yes

Very

I would expect 200 for CD so that seems very good.

Yeah that’s good

That’s crazy good.

What's the ACD average in NYC, ACD Art?

Some of them are CDs now, but yes, we’re all pretty open about our salaries with each other.

Yes congrats, squirrell it away

I havent gotten an offer yet, just trying to figure out what to ask for when you’re in that weird grey area between acd and cd

Seems good for ACD. FYI top level CDs on the client side are making $400k base, then they usually have 25-50% bonus on top of that. I used to work in a data role at Deloitte and gained exposure to compensation plans at a variety of media companies.

Creative director means VERY different things at different places. Be aware of that.

Im at the top of the salary band for my company at 175k, but negotiated for more pto.

This doesn't answer your question directly but is a related consideration - a lot of agencies (especially ones in holding companies) have a rule that above 200k /year you're only eligible for a raise every 2 years, sometimes more. Just something to keep in mind.

I have had several rounds of interviews for a role at Visa London office. When I reached out to the HR to check on progress/status after what they called the "final round", they said everything is positive and then set up another round with the hiring manager last week. TBH, that round seemed as if they want to make sure I have understood the job well. And there has been radio silence after that. Any idea how to read this? I have another offer and deliberating if i should just accept that.
