Looking to make the jump from Account Exec to Senior Account Exec. Moving from Chicago to Milwaukee. Interviewing for an agency role. Long-term goal is in-house in 2-3 years. Currently making $55k. What’s a realistic increase? Should I ask between $62-68k? I’ve been told by an Account Director that some agencies are doing sign-on bonuses, too and should even ask higher. Your thoughts? BG info: 5 years experience PR and advertising mix with background in digital marketing. Masters degree, too.

I’d give a single firm number — $68K. If that’s out of their pay band, that’s typically where conversations of a sign on bonus come in to make up for the difference.

Thank you!

Make sure you’re set on Milwaukee or "mill-e-wah-que" which is Algonquin for "the good land."

Appreciate that!

$68K sounds really low, but maybe because it’s not a big coastal city? I would say try $75k for an SAE level. Higher if you’re feeling gutsy. I know an SAE in a mid-sized NY agency that makes $90K & that’s a lot a lot.

So I got invited to do an on-site interview and as part of it, the hiring manager wants me to present some of the chemistry I'm currently working on. The problem is all my work has been government contracted and hasn't been published, so due to confidentiality I can't present any complete schemes or specific structures. Any tips on how to ace this presentation?

Hi fishes! Nagarro declined the counter offer letter ₹33,00,000 + shares worth 4.5LPA

Nagarro offered 18LPA. Initially I told HR for 22 but he mentioned 18 into their internal portal to their senior so after clearing all interview rounds I got 18.

When I asked the HR, he told me to accept it for now and bring the counter offer letter so they can revise offer letter.

But now they declined. Weird.

I am speculating that it still turns out cheaper than hotel parking. This is not for work so I wouldn't be able to expense it.

In my office we have a very small number of black people. I don’t know the exact numbers but it doesn’t seem like more than 10. All of them I know >3 are on a personal improvement plan for very basic reasons. One faced blatant racism and was placed off the project. Therefore it was harder for this person to find a new project. How to investigate if this is correlates with microagressions and discrimination towards black people? Any ideas? How to convince non POC that this is a problem?
