Depends where you live. In Chicago. Brand new jr. level producer. Probably somewhere around $45k

like

Pubicis - That seems way too low for NYC. 70k is more like it. But does depend on agency and job description.

@publicis I think that's more for junior level.

Agree with the $50k for jr/associate digital producer in ny or la. Anywhere else probably 40-45. Might be able to get those number up if you can actually code/develop too.

Mine was $52K, in NYC

About the same in LA too.

I would say 50k in nyc

(Speaking as a former digital producer)

oooo @as I've met plenty of ex account people (myself included) but I've never met an ex producer turned account person. So many questions!

Bring it on!

My issue with production - your job is nagging out her people to do their job. Love account management. Like getting to work with the clients and manage the entire agency scope - digital, broadcast, strategy, etc. The sales aspect is real fun too!

*nagging other people

That's funny you say that - that was what I hated about account.. always nagging people to do their job and/or having to sit over them while they worked AND having to baby everyone from clients to creatives while feeling like I had nothing to show for all the killing myself. Not to mention the politicking - I've worked at some agencies where the account dept is AGGRESSIVE with the politics. Maybe I'm just lucky but I definitely don't nag anyone to do anything - if anything I'm the one getting nagged by the account team. 😜 I'm glad you found your fit though - the bar is high, so it helps if you love it.

$55k in Virginia

55-60k in Sf

My wife is starting a full time job after 2 years. I’ve been paying all the expenses since we’ve been married. We each have our own separate accounts and a joint account. Her salary will be around $50-$75k. We agreed she needs to contribute to the expenses and I was thinking that starting off paying half the rent would be reasonable ($1,500). Maybe put that amount per month into the joint account and then she can do what she wants with the rest? Reasonable? How do others handle expenses?
