Making 57k as an associate producer in the bay area, was just approached to go in- house at a tech company for a program manager role. What's a reasonable salary to ask for?

Also, I guarantee if they are scouting associate producers for a "program manager" position, they are looking to pay a lot less than what a program manager with 10 years experience would be worth. Or worse, they don't understand what a program manager does and you'll basically be an associate producer there. Ask LOTS of questions before you take the job.

Associate producer to program manager? That's quite a jump. How many years as a producer are we taking about? it depends on your experience not title. I would frankly say don't even take the job and get more experience as a producer first. Something fishy about a company willing to hire an associate producer into that role who didn't climb at least to sr or executive producer first. No offense intended of course.

Sounds like SDP is a little low key jealous. OP, don't go for anything less than 70k

Seems like at tech companies production titles translate more to program manager titles rather than how production experience maps to titles in agencies but hear you loud and clear- thanks

Ok that being said let's assume it's equivalent to a mid level agency producer. 75-90k - can vary widely but again depends on experience.

Haha. Nope not jealous at all. No desire to 1. Be a program manager (ever), 2. Work at a startup again. I barely like being a producer as it is.

85-90

90-100

I got an offer in Singapore for 4k SGD per month. I have 3.4 years of experience in IT Audit and also did masters in specialization with Information Security and hold two certs.

The buy-in doesn’t matter.

Conceptually, a buy-in represents an equity partner’s contribution to the working capital of the firm.

If you imagine starting up a new firm, you and your partners would have to come out of pocket for the funds to pay salaries, rent office space, buy laptops, etc. until you got paid for (not just sold!) your first few projects. So when an equity partner buys-in, they’re writing a check that says they will pay the staff out of their own pocket if they have to.
