$175k is a lot for a strategy director. Even in NYC. Congrats @OP

Yes, yes you should. Get yourself to the % increase you want. Whatever you ask for - if it's reasonable - they'll end up splitting the difference or giving you what you asked for.

Always negotiate. If they can’t meet you in salary, ask for spot bonus, but get as much as possible!!!

In addition to spot bonus, if not on salary could negotiate on other things like PTO, x amount of work from home days, being sent to x Amount of conferences, are you part of leadership team, idk. Whatever other things that have monetary value and matter to you, that they could sign off on

That's smart. Thanks!

Additional details: working through a recruiter who told me 175 was the top of their range for the position. Understand the business needs to support the salary as well. Been at director level ~3 years

Did you get a formal offer or is that just what they’re offering?

Get the offer then negotiate

Say 183k make them bump you to a even 180

Hi all, happy new year!

I'm considering an industry offer versus a technology consulting firm. The former is a bit higher TC ~$15k.

Both are comparable culture wise somewhat; the teams have great coworkers; and the work would be interesting to me. My gut feeling tells me to go with the latter as I might narrow myself a lot. I'm seeking any reasons/factors you fish can suggest to corroborate that.

I like both stability and novelty, slowness and speed; I'm flexible so becomes a bit tricky lol!

It seems like there’s a huge range of salaries for “art directors” even within the same city... Does anyone have insight to what range I would be looking at (overall range, lower end of range because I’m a junior currently?). I have been working consistently for 2.5 years since I’ve been out of school, but I’ve worked several part time/freelance jobs and have had several internships throughout schooling years too (total EXP = 6 years?). Would be jumping ship, not an internal promotion. Thanks!

Also I feel guilty and somewhat selfish to even ask since I know I’m very privileged in these times, but I’ve been putting in more hours since I’ve started wfh - 5% increase seems fair to me. Promotions/new hires have resumed now too.
TIA!
