Is anyone contemplating a move outside of the city they’re in? Have any agencies said anything about adjusting salaries for people who’ve moved to cheaper cities? I’m in NY and my agency is moving to a hybrid / remote model. I badly want to move to ATL where it’s still reasonable to find a decent PR job but worried I’ll decrease my salary or earning potential in doing so. I also don’t want to ask my boss because I’m up for a promotion in Nov. and don’t want to give them a reason to lowball me.

Reduce salary based on geography? This ain’t consulting, don’t let anyone even entertain that idea (especially since they don’t really increase PR agency salaries when you move to markets in line with standard of living there). I would hold on disclosing to your boss until you got the promotion $$$. And if any recruiter/hiring manager mentions such a reduction, shut it down and move on. Do yourself a favor.

If your agency has an office in ATL, they may require you to officially transfer offices (our company does even while we work remotely) but that shouldn’t impact salary. I moved from Chicago and no salary impact (still employed by Chicago office) and I know others that have moved without impact as well.
