@LA creatives: what’s your guess at a CD salary at a small digital/social agency (creative department of about 25 people). I’ll start: $240k?

You are lucky if you get 200k IMO.

CD at a big agency would be 170-285ish. At a small digital/social only shop, maybe 150-185?

Wow. LA is not cheap. Plus at a small agency you’ll be working at least 60 hours a week. $150k seems crazy. Even $185k seems very low.

CDs used to get $250. They don’t anymore b/c it’s a buyers’ market... Sure, clients aren’t paying what they used to, but the C-suite is doing everything they can to maintain their bonuses and shareholder profits so it’s the worker bees who get the shaft

If anyone wants to join a boutique HR & Talent Advisory consulting firm, Kincentric is hiring for an Associate Partner role! Location doesn’t really matter, but preferably in IL, NY, or ATL.
