I know personally that Digital can go as high as 125k with experience. recruiters will quote as high as 130k

That's very high. And AD is a big band. You are pushing into VP territory. Should be based on years of experience. There are plenty of ADs at 85k.

I was at 95k in Chicago. So I would hope something like 110k would be realistic in NY.

100K here in NY

In the olden days of yore Account grades were: coordinator, AAE, AE, Sup, Management Sup, VP, Director, SVP, EVP, and C suite. Never heard of an AAD but the world evolves...

Most hold cos pay the same in NY vs Chicago. Not going to get more because it costs more here.

I was at $125K in the creative agency side in NYC a few years ago, don't know about media agency

Account is different than media. We are talking about the Associate Director title which falls between Supervisor and Director at most media agencies. It is also different if you are Planning or Buying, Digital or Specialized.

I understand, and the salary I quoted was when I was an Associate Account Director at a creative agency. I understand media side is different. Also, good to know.

I'm familiar with all of them and have been many of them starting from acct coordinator:) My current one on here is the short version, it conveys what I am enough, lol
