Grey1 - just wanting to be an internal manager vs. client facing. The older I get the more I realize my personality doesn't align with the client schmoozing and making me unhappy.

Depends on experience level and other factors as one size does not fit all. For regular PM, can be $60-120k.

Why are you transitioning from account management to be a project manager? Just curious

Mid-level is about the same as Account Sup, typically. Sometimes a little less.

$70-90k mid level PM in Chicago. I'd go up $10k in NY and DC.

Anyone else ever feel like a completely inadequate consultant? I'm struggling with performance quality on this project because I just feel dumb and it demotivates me to really strive to improve. Possibly also impacted by burnout because I performed well on other engagements and enjoyed my teams more. Just not sure where to go from here to get where I need to be.

I recently accepted an offer which entails a nice signing bonus. I have a bf of like 1 year. He has, twice, kind of jokingly suggested that he expects me to pay for our trip we are taking before I start the new job. Is it selfish of me to like still request he split the cost of accommodation etc? I make more $ than him for context. And he usually treats me to din whenever we go out. It’s kind of a lot of $ for me to just do, and I’d rather like, invest it… but I don’t want to be selfish. Idk.

Rant: I interviewed at a mid size firm for Senior Tax Associate role and went really well. Partner calls after a couple days to say they want to offer me a job and asked me if I wanted senior 1 or 2. I said senior 2 since I have a years experience as a senior and she was okay with it and discussed salary. She said she will think about the final offer and let me know. A week later she comes back to tell me that my small firm experience probably won’t help much and it would be difficult for me...

I’m 30 years old and have been running my own (small) agency over the past two years, working with local businesses. I’ve got a solid book of client and spec work, with creative ad copy.

Now I’m looking to work at an ad agency as a copywriter. Honest question: is it a reach to pursue that? And, if it isn’t a reach, do I apply for entry-level?
