Is it true that client side pays more than agency? And if anyone is open to disclose what their salary jump was?

Nope. Although clients tend to have better packages with higher percentage of bonus.

Also tech/client side thinks in terms of total comp, so including stock and bonuses, which usually makes up for any base pay difference

Tech definitely pays more than agency. Client side doesn’t always once you get senior at an agency.

I went from agency to in-house and jumped $16k. Hated that job and landed another in-house role after two months. Jumped another $10k. All the same title. Yes, there is a LOT more money.

Plus bonus 😬 it’s been a dream!

When I hopped in-house, I got a $20K bump. Went to a DTC brand - definitely good money at plenty of brands.

Yes. Especially if you go into big tech/FAANG. I’m in analytics and I was making 100k flat at agency, my total TC went up to 224K when I jumped 😩 Tech is also wild. As another data point, I got an offer at a beauty brand and still had a 20k pay bump and 15% bonus offer.

Yep! This is why you got to look at total comp and know you’ll actually get to take PTO.

I switched from audit to consulting, and I thought I’d enjoy my job since I’m no longer ticking the box.. doing something that’s more challenging (what people said lol) .. helping the client etc etc but honestly the job seems pretty much the same.

Or are all corporate jobs pretty much the same other than the pay / wlb (which is def. better)
