What can VPs expect to make at Edelman in NY?? I’m on the higher end of pay at the Director level (currently $140s) and wondering how high a request I can make. I want the job which is why I care. Otherwise, I would just ask for what I want.

Would love to see the day that we normalize open salary policies, it leads to a much fairer workplace and industry.

Yes!! Totally agree, the lack of transparency and salary variation in our industry is mind-boggling. I’ve had recruiters / HR just now recently tell me my salary was too high for them, however, when I knew I was severely underpaid no one said anything at all….not a word. Took my mentor’s advice and started asking for higher than I wanted and was shocked when people didn’t even bat an eyelash at it. The “don’t talk about salary” thing only benefits companies, never us as the workers.

VP is usually 130-160K in the industry... depends on a lot but Edelman tends to pay higher because of retention issues.

Thank you! That was the range I was thinking it’d be around but have also seen a few places slightly lower than that so wanted to ask before I gave them a range of my own.

That seems high for VP

I make around 140 as a VP at Edelman on the West Coast. I’m a newer VP so think if you have more experience in the role you could ask for more.

NYC based VPs at large PR agencies like Edelman make 135-180, really depends on experience, speciality areas, how in demand you are or desperate the agency is.

If this helps - I left my last PR agency gig (not Edelman but a large agency) as a VP making $145k (this was in 2017 with 2 years in role).

What does a AD make in NYC ?

@WS1 VP range can be much broader tbh; depending on experience. $150-180k would be a solid range for someone coming into the role with highly relevant experience. Could be higher in some competitive shops.

You should still ask for what you want, even if you want the job. A job is more important than what you’re worth? Come on now.

I would say Edelman you’d be looking at 170s in NY for VP if Health or Corp. Less visibility into brand. Believe slightly less

The answers are so unexpected to me. At brands a VP makes 5X that

You realize an agency VP typically equates to in-house comms manager/sr manager right? A VP title doesn’t translate as is from agency to in-house.
