Thanks to everyone for posting. Pay transparency will help all of us.

25 years as a copywriter and creative director in Chicago, Detroit and L. A. I peaked at $175k. Making $140k in current job and pretty happy just to still be employed. I think even at my peak I made about the same as the CDs I had in Chicago as a junior over 20 years ago.

Sorry but I wholeheartedly disagree. This salary should be 20k higher given the years of experience and playing a long game shouldn’t equal losing out year over year on what you’re worth. No idea what your gender is (either way same comment) but as a woman I’m constantly told to tread lightly and be grateful about salaries that are lower than my male counterparts. It felt damn good when I finally caught up. Push for more.

Would anyone in this bowl who's looking to find a new job be interested in being accountability buddies? I get to a point and then I get too anxious, or I feel too depressed to actively works towards applying to things. Would ask in the exit bowl, but it'd be helpful to buddy with somebody who gets it
