What’s a good range for someone who just made the jump from ACD to CD in Chicago? Would there be a salary difference between a network agency and an Indy agency?

Network agency will more than likely pay more, usually about a $10K-$20K difference. As a first year CD in Chicago i was making $160

Prob $130k-150k? Yes, there might be a slight difference.

130-150 is more ACD level pay.

CD usually starts as low as 140k and caps out around 180k depending on the shop and the accounts.

I’m leaving a Manager role to take a Director one. They are finalizing the formal offer letter now. I want to leave my current team on good terms, not drop the ball on projects I’m leaving. I’d also like (need) at least a week to refresh and reset and get organized before starting the new director role. I’ve been negotiating terms with the new place since September 3. We agreed on compensation yesterday. Is asking for a Nov 1 start date pressing my luck/being a jerk or totally reasonable?

Currently working as SM2 at PwC and interviewing with KPMG for a D position. Is is a good comparison in terms of designation? How’s the comp for D in KPMG? T2 city here. I have been with EY in the past and can vouch PwC offered a better WLB and culture. Always heard KPMG has better WLB and culture. Is it just a speculation or have some truth in it? Strategic Advisory FSS role, 8.5 YOE, masters.

A friend of a friend asked if I could refer her to my firm. I agreed (seems like a good candidate and decent fit) since it’s hard to get through just by applying directly online and she doesn’t have a recruiter. We haven’t really talked about the referral bonus. Should I split the referral bonus if she gets hired, or is it fair to keep it since I helped her get the job?

Daddy D is throwing around some pretty crazy referral bonuses right now. If I can hit four referrals, I’ll split evenly among all four + myself. Up to $10k per person and at least $2.5k per person. Put it in escrow and everything. So if you’re looking to change firms, a new opportunity, etc. DM me. Can easily negotiate a nice sign on bonus, and my offer should sweeten the pot.

Been on a long year+ freelance contract at an agency. Took a much lower hourly rate with the promise of converting to FT staff after 3 months. Due to Covid that timing got pushed (understandably) but I recently learned the FT role is not available until 2022 earliest. Got a new freelance offer after 1 day of reaching out at my regular day rate. What to do?
