On the verge of becoming ACD. If promoted (and salary isn’t in line with that of an ACD), can you negotiate salary or try for something higher? Or do I need to leave to see a solid increase?

You can definitely negotiate their raise. Don’t just take what they throw at you. But yes, your biggest increase will be as a free agent. Even so…it’ll be nice to take the promotion title so you can officially start demanding ACD salaries.

I got a 30% bump when I got promoted - its possible at the right spot!

You need to leave to see anything significant.

I was afraid that was the answer. Really like my agency. I’ll give it a bit more. Sooner or later I’ll have to leave

Way easier to negotiate at an independent shop than a holding company

They don't care though^. They know if they make an exception for one person it can disrupt their whole compensation model if word gets out.

You really don't have any leverage to negotiate a promotion. When they promote you, you will be new at the role and getting adjusted to your additional responsibilities.

Counterpoint - most people get a promotion after they’ve basically been doing the new position for a year. They got an ACD at a senior rate for months.

I used to be the person telling you to get that cheddar. Now, with hindsight, I’ll tell you that an agency you really like is really rare. Ride that out while you can. Find the people you can talk to and see what they can do and how you can set yourself up to make what you want sooner rather than later. Advocate for yourself gracefully and let them know why you deserve it. You got this.

I was not satisfied with my offer when I was promoted and successfully negotiated a significant raise (over 20%) without leaving my company. Be honest, firm and persistent. Don’t leave a job you love for a paycheck that’s not even promised.

Tonight Meghan said that she was concerned that “the first member of color in this family isn’t being titled in the same way as other grandchildren would be”.

This is why I feel like this interview was somewhat staged and that M&H are not exactly the most trustworthy.
