I know tons of AEs and different shops (large holding companies to little boutique) and I would say MANY get paid under 60k even with a year or so as an AE. I'd love to know whete these don't take less than 60k people are coming from haha

Is it that high now? I thought 55 is pretty standard offer

I’m a female. Salaries at all stages below. Moved a level up every year or less. AAE - 35k AE - 45k SAE - 65k Sup - 80k

It’s more like $50 to 60k. Also, if shops don’t have Supes, they will probably have an SAE/Account Manager as a buffer. AE work is very different from AS work... Where are all the people saying above $60k getting their numbers from? That is not industry norm in NYC... $60k is the cap for an experienced AE, $55k is the norm with any experience, $50k for a new AE.

Yeah I'd sayb45-60k is pretty standard/reasonable but people's responses are making me question everyone I know that are AEs and if we are getting screwed

Yea, I’m a female with 5 years experience. I went to a smaller shop as an SAE with more responsibility so was able to get that major jump. AAE - 36K AE - 48K SAE - 75K Sup - 91K

I’m similar to @AS3. Moved agencies at almost every level so that’s why there are 2 salaries for 3 of them. AAE - 35-40K AE - 45K SAE - 55-62K AS - 72-90K

I started as an AE at $50k. Then after 1.5 years got another offer and negotiated $62k. I think around $50k is the average as a new AE

I wouldn’t accept less than $60k unless it’s some sort of unique brand or learning experience you’re seeking

48-68k Some shops dont have Sups so can be a little higher

If you’re going from an AAE into an AE role I’d say $60-$65, since you don’t have any AE experience under your belt yet

@AS1 yes, I actually meant to type no SAE spots so may be higher

lol I was making 40 as an aae so I think it's unlikely you'll jump to 60 but doesn't hurt to ask

Let go recently, but last day isn't until Friday. Have a call with a hiring manager this week when I'm sure I'll be asked why I'm leaving consulting. Should I mention that I was laid off? That's not why I'm looking (started before), but also don't want to appear as though I'm hiding that information as it would eventually come out when I have to report my dates of employment.
