There is a creative director (not GCD) salary conversation happening in with numbers like $270-300K being thrown out. With my estimation, I could quit now, go back to school, start as a junior..

Depending on agency size and duties, I firmly believe EP’s should make as much as GCD’s. I work at a well known larger side of mid-sized creative agency, and do just as much, if not more than the GCD’s. Client facing, large/multiple campaigns, big clients, oversee all mediums, etc.

Creative Director title can mean one thing at one agency and a lot less at another. At that salary level it’s a half sales job at a big agency with good budgets. If you were EP selling million dollar shoots to agencies you’d be making that kinda money as a producer. Grass is always greener.

Hi fishes! I Have an interview at an agency in NY I’ve been crushing on for a while. Having a hard time figuring out my salary range. I make 90k in SF at agency, would it be crazy for me to enter the discussion at 85-90k? Knowing I’d be willing to be backed down to around 80k (give or take 2k). Glassdoor is a little confusing bc there’s separate suggestions for “senior designer” and “senior graphic designer”. Anyone have suggestions or willing to offer how much they make? Thanks y’all!

Any fish with experience moving to an internal, non-consulting role with their firm and have an opinion on making the move now? Would be promotion (which I am unlikely to get in my area of the org due to freezes) but very aware of the old adage “if it’s not billable, it’s killable.” No layoffs yet and no pressure for me to move out of consulting, but this may be an option to level up and maybe have a better exit in 18 months. Thoughts?
