You should be making more now and you should ask for $120K as that’s the going rate for a Senior Copywriter in NYC.

I agree with CW2. Going from $90k to $110k internally would be a good ask. Although it’s tough imagining an agency giving a 20%+ raise to someone they already have on the roster. $120k is a fair rate on the open market. But sadly enough, I see people offering that for ACDs these days.

I’m in-house. Apparently they have “bands” and performance reviews every 6 months, allowing for “smaller, incremental raises” so I’m not too optimistic

I agree youre underpaid now, and I agree 120 would be a good number in NY. The problem, sorry to say, is that the raise you get by just getting a promotion is notoriously small—-and that’s even at a place that pays well. Youre at a place that underpays, and I bet youll find they want to give you a pitifully small money bump (maybe none). You might have to go out and get a real offer at another place (and be ready to take it) to see any real raise from them. I hope Im wrong, good luck (and congrats on the promotion 😃)

@EY does your company offer any specials re: student loan refi? For example Deloitte gives an additional 0.25% off Sofi. Kinda not sure if I should be refi-ing now, considering I’m looking at potential $75k -> $100k+ raise if I end up at EY in a few months. Trying to take advantage of low rates while they last tho, not sure what they’ll be like in ~2-3 months time

I just became manager to 2 people on my team. But no promotion, title change, or salary bump. They said I need to prove myself and it will be factored in during annual reviews. Is that typical or BS?
