That’s definitely fair, I would ask for more like 75k to be prepared for them to come back a bit lower. In this competitive market tho, I’d hope you get it if they want / need to retain you! Depends on agency performance, account size & responsibility but there are definitely Midwest agencies paying more like 85k for SAM. Does your agency have a supervisor role too? Or straight from SAM to AD?

Thank you! I'm at a large agency, so lots of levels. AAM, AM, SAM, Sup, Associate Director, Director, Group Director ++++

If you’re at a large agency, sometimes they will cap raises, so 20-25% will be hard to get by staying. I got the largest raise they said was possible and still wasn’t making what I should have been making. I left and now make 85k as a SAM. So you’ll need to either switch, or bring them an offer from somewhere else and see if they can match it (but be prepared to leave if they won’t)

Wow, that's great! Congrats!

I recently asked my boss for a raise after discussing a yearly review with them. I was told because there was a company wide raise back in December, that would technically be my raise, which was $0.45/hr. I’ve stepped in to a number of roles here and feel I am not being paid adequately after taking on the extra work. I’m wondering how to go about asking for a raise of $2/hr after all this.
