Lol laughably low. Like, 50-60% low. That's on the lower end for senior creatives in NYC.

I think...i hope... that’s a pre-populated estimate from LinkedIn

FWIW I had a meeting with their recruiter and all of their salary ranges were super low for NY. I think they’re banking off the fact that they’re Vice and people want that stuff in their books so they’ll take lower pay for “opportunity”

Yes. I wouldn’t take lower than $160K in this market at this time. You could probably even go higher as a baseline. I read somewhere else that people are offering $210K at times because of the lack of talent.

It might be. But, it’s available. And, whether it is or isn’t rare isn’t the point. The point is $90K is way off base.

Veeery low. I also know for a fact Vice pays very little.

NYC ACD salary starts at 140k and goes up to around 180k. Maybe even more for an tech company like Spotify or Amazon.

Is everyone missing the (LinkedIn est.) next to the range? LinkedIn underestimates creative salaries at every level all the time. I guarantee VICE is paying more than 97k for an ACD.

I didnt even know linkedin posted estimate salaries lol. So yeah, totally thought that was from VICE

That’s so low they’ll be lucky to get any applicants. It’s like 40k lower than the bottom end of acd range.

Yes that’s criminally low. Shame on you, VICE.

Oh! Thought it's a real range cos of the new requirement.

Vice media is worth billions of dollars they can afford more than this. But those estimates are based off of LinkedIn algorithms not reality

Yes. Way too low.

Yes.

The publishing industry notoriously pays less, which is why I had to get out — the only people above 200k are c-suite. An ACD is comparable a manager in that industry, so therefor the salary is equivalent.

Yes, absolutely

VICE is notorious for under-paying because they are “cool.”
