Where does an ACD make $180k? Asking for my bank account.

Yeah, they’re not paying like that in the Midwest.

Are you seriously chocked by his 180k as ACD? I make 185k myself. NYC, big agency. You have to stop thinking it is the position. It’s the portfolio.

The range for CDs in New York is roughly 170k to 250k. Depending on your portfolio, the size of the account you’re interviewing etc... I think you can start by asking anywhere between 185k and 200k as a recently promoted CD. If they like you enough, they won’t be offended even if they think those numbers are too high.

Just checked with my better half. His salary ranged from $185K - $200K in his first year as a CD (which I just realized is what ACD2 said).

like

I think a CD, good portfolio, should be making 200k, minimal, in the NYC market. When I say “good portfolio”, I mean famous work, proven results, awards and some pitches won. An agency that doesn’t pay 200k for a guy like that, is stupid.

I make roughly that as a CD. So, good on you. Salary jumps from internal promotions seem to be less than jumps you make by being poached. But if they're willing to pay you 180k as an ACD, I'd imagine the CD job would be at least $220k a year (higher if it involves a significant change in responsibility).

like

Is this NY? Depends on the agency. Some would say 200K is a CD, others would not make you CD until they could justify paying you 250K.

An ACD making 180? Shiieeeeetttttttt

You’re right. I do.

I get interrupted a lot at work now that we are virtual. I don't feel like this happens to everyone else in my team as much, meaning folks tend to let them talk longer. So I've reduced my contribution and talk less. But then others make the same point I'm thinking and would normally have said. So now I just look like a silent non-contributor or someone who gets interrupted a lot. Office/team culture is generally good, respectful and peaceful. How do I change this? What can I do differently?
