Totally agree that teachers should make more. But to play devil's advocate, they do get a lot of things that we don't get: summers (and breaks) off, pensions in some places, job security, a set schedule, additional money for doing additional work (like coaching a sport or directing a musical), not to mention a rewarding job where they are directly impacting the lives of people in a positive way. If they wanted to make great money, they wouldn't go into teaching. They know they want to work with kids and have a schedule that accommodates their life, and that's what they get.

OP is in strategy. Strategy roles have much higher pay because the roles are scarce. It's a supply/demand thing...small supply of qualified candidates + small number of roles = high pay. With places like Miami Ad School widely advertising their Strategy programs now, we will see salaries for these roles trend down beginning in 4 years, as more and more strategy graduates flood the market. That should end Associate level six figure roles pretty quickly. So congrats, and enjoy it while you can, OP!

Don’t get me started. My mom won awards from the government (Federal – this was in Canada) for innovation in teaching. She’s phenomenal and she chose to stay a teacher even though they begged her to be a principal. Canada pays teachers way better but I still topped her salary by the time I was 28.

That’s partially because you can’t retire from this industry. You have to make as much money as possible as fast as you can before you are pushed out at 40. Advertising is a sprint. Teaching is a marathon with a pension.

My mom is also in government - started as a secretary way back when and now is the most senior person at her branch.

I agree teachers are underpaid, but I also know a few people who are teachers and there’s a reason salaries are lower. It’s just not as specialized a skill. It just takes an angel of a person to deal with kids.

@DS1 Teachers may get summers “off” but they’re not paid for that time either. Plus they usually stay two weeks late/arrive two weeks early close up or prepare for the next year so they don’t even get the full summer.

Yeah but she will get paid her salary for the rest of her life i.e. pension, you will get 0 in retirement. So subtract that from your salary over time, also take out 4 mo. A year for days you work per year, spring, summer and winter breaks.

I have minor generalized anxiety. Lately, I’ve had worse anxiety than normal, and as a result, I’m taking my second mental health day in a row. I didn’t tell my firm that it was a mental health day, I just told them I was sick with non-COVID symptoms. None of the partners I work for objected or said anything negative, but I’m now getting worried that they’re somehow going to find out it was just a mental health day instead of physical illness, and that it will somehow bite me in the ass . . .
