Oh I misread that. 85-115k I would think.

With 7 years of experience I think you can get quite a bit. I’m 3 years in and pulling 100, which is a bit high as I got lucky with an aggressive negotiation, but my point is you should definitely shoot for more. You’ve got nothing to lose.

I have about seven years of experience in big agencies. I also spent some months freelancing at a pharma agency so I have some understanding of what the work is like, but I’m not sure where I’d fall in terms of salary range. Any ideas?

Probably around 90-120k in NYC

75-80k

When I was a SAD in non pharma it was about 80k but that was a while ago.

Are you looking to go into as a Senior AD or Sup? I would say try to bargain around 100k if not more. Shoot your shot

What about recently promoted folks from Jr AD to AD? What am I suppose to get paid. I’m in pharma btw

Closer to 70k honestly

Thanks for the info, y’all.

85-115 is the range.

What about VP level? Anyone can guess? I started looking and I’m getting lower range that I’m getting at my current agency.

How do you all handle non-billable work on top of meeting your billable targets (assuming no minimum requirement and bonus threshold not an issue)? I.e. If you have two hours of non-billable work to do (but it’s work that can be added to your time sheet like business development) do you still bill ~8 hours of billable work on top of that for a total of 10hrs on your sheet?
