Starting salary for junior art director NYC?

45-60k currently if im not mistaken. Within that salary band take what you can get. With persuasive/factual negotiation try and push it up from their offer, but don’t try and hardball them or get greedy. You can make it work but just don’t get up from the table feeling like you’ve been fucked.

Based on agency types, it varies a lot. Social/Digital can go up to 75k, some independent agencies can go as low as 40k. I'd say 55k is a fair amount to work at good places as a junior.

How do you actually survive in NYC with a 35 - 45k salary. After taxes, that barely leaves you with anything. Tips?

I had the weirdest thing happen to me. The CTO flew down to meet with me and discuss start date, OTE Salary, and even emailed me the benefits guide. He scheduled a meeting with the CEO and said “offer letter to follow.” Three hours before the meeting the CTO called me to tell me they were rescinding everything due to a business decision that they aren’t filling the Solutions Architect role. Does this happen? What should I think of it?

Hello! I'm trying to get a grasp of a good base salary and TC for the Chicago area. I'm a UX contractor being converted to full time and I received an offer for 100k base + 10% bonus. For context this is like a 30% increase from my salary as a contractor and the company isn't a tech company. I have about 2 years of general industry experience (web dev, web design, agency work) and 1 year of actual product design and finishing up a master's in HCI as well.. Is this reasonable?

How should I expect to increase the salary up to six-figures for the next 2-3 years?
