Everything should be caveated with “depends where the agency is based.” Agencies based in NYC/SF will have a higher budget for those roles than those based outside of big cities.

Also entry level varies - are you entering the workforce for the first time? In that case, 45-60 is your NYC range. 35-40 would be my expectation at a smaller independent agency outside of the city.

If you are just switching to this and have other applicable experience - in either pharma or advertising - don’t sell yourself short. Shoot for SAE and they’ll tell you if you don’t align with the requirements. What’s the worst that could happen? :)

Good luck!
