What's your take on location based pay? I have been looking to switch from my inhouse role to a remote role and have been given really low offers due to my location. One company in particular was offering 75k-100k based on experience, but also adjusted it down due to me being in Oklahoma. They offered 47k and when I asked about it they said the cost of living is extremely low and it is unfair to pay me the advertised salary when I live here. Raises would also be adjusted for location as well.

I would have asked them if they have the budget to purchase a high-performance Mercedes, why would they want to only pay for a Ford Fiesta?

You get what you pay for so performance will be adjusted accordingly :)

I never understood it and think it’s a way for places to pay people less than they’re worth.

That’s a drastic salary adjustment. I might ask for more and state that you have your own living expenses

That offer didn't end well. They also wanted me to purchase a computer with their specified specs (my current pc doesn't meet their requirements) and I would need to have their monitoring software installed to keep me from working multiple jobs. I gave them a hard no. I currently pay for the Adobe suite and Cinema 4D when I have the funds. When I don't; I try using Blender even though it is much slower.

That offer adjustment is extremely low. Red flags for sure

Are that many bad companies out there though. I have been looking for remote work for quite awhile now and as soon as they hear Oklahoma it is like I'm in a different class of people who don't deserve to get paid. Locally is no better though...

Graphic designer in Oklahoma here! Being paid currently 60k, hybrid role in OKC. Although 60K is on the higher end I believe for designer jobs in OKC. Although I’ve been interviewing with another company within OKC and they’re hiring around the 65k-72K range. Negotiate that 47K salary for more!

Good to see others in OK making decent money. I wrote off that company and am back on the search.

(1/2) Did she steal my work? I was a creative designer for an e-comm company last year. While I was there I hand drew a digital illustration for a package design assignment. They ended up repurposing it for a print on a dress. I haven’t added it to my portfolio yet, but I just came across my illustration on a portfolio. The girl who replaced me after I quit took my line work from the illustration and slapped their logo in the middle and put it on her portfolio as her work for the brand.
