We are getting ready to implement a office wide base salary, 68k. Receptionist? 68k. Why? Because we can. We've never taken outside funding, and taking a page out of Dan Prices playbook. Anyone else?

Well half the reason he started at 35k is because the agency’s clients have been squeezing the budgets and contracts for years. OP seems to be different, but I wonder if his company is as generous to their vendors as they are to their employees

@SM1. I get alot of questions about what company I'm with, eventually I will post something on the job boards, as we will be looking to add to our crew.

@SM1, of course. Our new plan scales with promotions / time in as any other would, the only difference is rather than starting at 30-40k a year (which is honestly an insult), you'd start at 68.

It’s really uplifting to see someone in a position of power consciously put people over profit. Way to go.

@SD1 indeed it is! Haha.

But why not 69k? Ha. Mad respect - that’s a beautiful thing to have the ability to implement office wide. Keep it up!

Havas1, sure, but let me ask you how many times you had financial hardships in the past year? How many hours did you work that you weren't paid for? How many work related calls did you answer when not in the office? You're on the clock more than you think. I've seen proof of what a base salary can do, it's amazing.
