What do you want to be doing in 5 years? I think it all depends on your personal priorities.

I’m more of an individual contributor than a pure manager so I’m leaning towards the latter.

That’s your answer, then.

Brand side you may possibly be able to negotiate what you want your title to be as well, for optics purposes in case you leave.

Yes, any chance you can negotiate a Sr Designer title at least?

What is it before bonuses and stocks because neither of those are guaranteed?

Base salary is about as much as I’m making now

I figure it’d open more opportunities as well

Go with Tech. Advertising in 5 years...

Go with tech. In five years your base pay will be spent on Netflix and chilling while your tech stocks should have ballooned because of the hard work you and your team members poured into the company. Go create your own destiny. Good luck.

Have salaries in advertising really changed over the years/decades? I remember in 1993 at Lowe NYC when the salary list was left on the printer... the CDs were making about $200k on average. That’s 27 years ago.

Completed all formal interviews for an opportunity. Now they'd like me to have an informal meet & greet with the person I would be managing. I love the idea of this and I already manage in my current role. Looking for other HR 🐠 perspectives on how to approach this informal meet & greet...take the lead? Treat it like a 1:1?

Currently an A3 in audit. My team communicated to me that they’re pushing for me to get mid-year promo (Jan 2022) but I’m also interested in leaving to another Big 4 for AAS as an S1. Current salary is $73.6k and am unsure of how much I should be going for to make the jump worth it. I know EY FAAS offered a friend $85k in my market but assuming I get mid year promo I’m not so sure the salary bump would be significant enough. How much room for negotiation is there with Big 4 experienced hires?

My therapist just told me I'm depressed..do you ever feel like they tell you things you hear a lot or could have figured out on your own? Like take care of yourself, it's ok to feel such and such, etc. I'm still newer to therapy so wondering if that's the common experience? Do you ever have moments where you're like wow that actually is eye opening and I wouldn't have gotten that from reading self help books and websites etc?

Hi Today I received a call from the Accenture recruiter who had discussed my HR round and my profile was put on hold. She told me that at level 10 the maximum fixed salary can be 11.10 LPA and rest variable. 11.10 is fine or can they increase upto 13 LPA? I told her to proceed my profile although I am having offers from other organisation like PWC with 14 fixed, but I beleive Accenture is better in terms of work life balance and onsite opportunity.
