In NYC it’s $1500-$2500 / day for CDs depending on amount of awards. I normally bill out at $1800 but know a few who get $2500. I imagine the rate is similar in LA / San Fran.

I get 1000-1200 in LA so as a CD you should make more than me according to the laws of ad agencies.

CD in LA should get $1500-$2500 day rate depending on awards, etc. $1200 is ACD rates.

$800 a day ($100/hour) is a senior writer level day rate. Unless you’re getting sodomized by Creative Circle.

Not sure about that. I was thinking maybe max is $1,400 to $1,800 a day. It’s a small agency too. Is there a range of rates for freelancers in CA. I’m in Texas working remotely for them.

CD2, according to “yourrate” I’m underpaid.

ACD in la is $1000-$1300 with major awards. You should be getting $1300 a day at the very least. I get $800 a day in Chicago as acd and this is one of the cheaper markets. You are getting super low balled.

Question— do you share your comp with close friends? Me and my roommate have been friends forever and while I don’t really share my specific pay, Im not sure if I should share it with her.

She asked me if I knew what my raise would be and I just told her the % but not the actual amount. Is that unnecessarily secretive? We’re in diff industries too.

It's finally happened. I can feel that I have given up. The breaking point? My CD making a big deal out of having a call on Saturday at 1 pm to look over a deck that was due this morning. I rearrange my schedule. I move my kids piano lesson. I stay up until 2 the night before making sure everything is in line. He never calls. Doesn't respond to my text. I send him the deck and he doesn't respond until Sunday afternoon. Then gets pissy when I say I can't hop on the phone at that exact moment.
