I’m currently interviewing for a Program Manager role & the recommend level from my interviewers was L4. I have 11 years experience. I’ve worked on large complex highly visible projects for large companies (Fox, Disney, a few record labels). I’ve built out PMOs from scratch & I even launched my own CPG company a few years back & the products are widely distributed. I’m currently a Director of Project Management. For this reason L4 seems a bit low - any chance the level is negotiable?

Question for both agency and brand-side women- how much do you normally spend or charge on production? Background- I’m now brand side (formerly agency) and our media is under $10million in working dollars plus fees, but we spend nearly $5million on production and creatives services and fees.
