Salaries

I've been offered CD position within my small agency. Used to have an ECD but didnt re-up contract. I was already running the creative team of 12. Any ideas what I should be getting for salary?

Not familiar with Vegas salaries but you seem underpaid. Midwest ACD would start around 110k and NYC ACDs would be around 140k. These are just off the cuff average numbers, before all the experts start jumping in on how wrong these are.

Also worth asking them if they plan to hire an ECD or if you’re going to be the new leader of the department

Good point. Having an understanding of what your responsibilities are and who you’d be reporting to (i.e., ECD, CEO, etc.) will help solidify your expected salary. It’ll also show management that you’re forward thinking and potentially open the conversation for you to become ECD, if you so desire.

Just more general info, In Las Vegas at a small agency (just under 50 people). I will continue to report to the two owners of the agency and they have no plans to bring in anyone else, unless I turn down the CD position. My responsibilities range from managing the creative team of 12, pulling together pitches/RFPs, to writing scope for clients. It's ... A lot.

Currently making 75k salary. Apologies, I thought it was in the last message.

Same. You should already be in the 110-130 range at ACD. Seems like this place is exploiting you at this point. Don't let them continue to have you doing CD work for mid level pay
