Creatives

What exactly does VP mean? Contractual obligation, reports to President? Can’t get fired? What are pros and cons if any of a position like VP Creative Director, etc.

It’s just a level of status, like the “Senior” in YOUR title. Within some networks there are small perks (e.g., extra vacation days). A VP can be let go as easily as anyone else; the title comes with no special powers or protections and probably nothing unique regarding pay.

Agency side it means nothing. Client side it means everything. VP Creative (or Design) Director client side is the highest you can normally get (since they have no CCO titles).

Doesn’t mean much. And it definitely doesn’t mean you can’t get fired

It’s a different compensation structure, that’s all pretty much.

Had an interview where the agency said they don't do "junior / mid / senior" levels in their creative department. My CW and I are st that stage where that seniority is important for us and for our future progression. Is it one of those things that we fight for on the contract, or just sign anyway and just put "senior creative" on our LI title? I've never come across this before, so any experience or thoughts are appreciated.

Anyone know the salary band for 2 YOE in consulting at a big 4? Just got promoted from A to C and if I got a 10% raise I’d only be at $63k which I think is severely underpaid.
