It depends where on the salary band you are as well as the discipline. 20% might be too little or too much depending on whether you’re under or over the mean salary.

Depends if you're staying in house or jumping. 20% if jumping. Prob no more than 10 - 15% if staying.

what A/D said - it's usually 10% at same agency, 20% if moving.

I got a $20k bump which came out to a 33.3% boost from where I was.

In my experience, every promotion has come with an exactly 20% increase.

Moving from Entry level to first level is generally higher % jump. Those % increases shrink down as you become more senior. I don't know what a senior strategist is or what it would be promoted to but if you detail I will tell you what I think...

to copywriters' point - it also depends where you're at.

If you’re jumping you’re gonna get way more than a 20% raise at entry level

In a tough situation and need some advice. I’m an audit associate who got passed up for senior promotion this year, but senioring a busy season engagement. There is another senior that is supposed to be on the job, but he hasn’t been staffed on the engagement the past couple weeks and is off this week. I now have the full responsibility of this engagement on my hands and feel like it’s pretty unfair considering I got passed up for promotion and am not getting paid to be a senior. What do I do?
