Jr cw in NYC is probably closer to 50k-55k.

I would love to make more than 50....😭

65k is standard for a Jr in nyc. Highest I’ve heard recently is 68. So I’d ask for that, and be prepared to accept whatever they give you. They won’t turn you down for asking for that, but they also won’t want to negotiate too much with a jr either.

If they ask for a number, say 68. If they give a number, ask if there is any flexibility to go a few grand higher.

I’ve hired many jr copywriters at a large network agency in nyc. We paid them 65-68. Every place is different. Luckily, you won’t have much negotiating power as a jr. So all you can do is ask for their offer and then ask for a few grand more.

Sorry to hear other places pay less, I don’t doubt it.

Mid level or jr?

@CD1 it’s a junior position

I made 60k as junior

Thanks for the responses everyone. I hear 50-55K and then 60-70k. What agencies are in which camp? Ie for a weird example, barbarian vs McCann

PM me the agency you’re talking to and I can tell you if I have inside info there

58k after a quarter here

I make 47 at a small agency. I know havas and most big agencies offer 55. 50-60 is average

Update: I checked some old docs and was wrong. 55-60.

Hired at 50k at a smaller agency following my internship. I’d imagine it’s a little cheaper being promoted from within at any level.

Juniors make 55 here. Big global agency.

Am I particularly uptight, or is writing meant to be done alone, without a partner talking to you? With past partners, we chat through script notes and then I go off to execute. Current partner likes to sit and chat as I write. To me, writing is crafting a conversation. So I can’t talk to you and simultaneously talk to this audience. Of course I can just say “I’m gonna go write.” But since we’re both CD level, I’m like…is this his first rodeo? Maybe other writers are different though.
