Ive been either in LA or NYC (been back and forth a few times) and now in LA. I have a digital background but transitioned to “integrated” - pretty much I don’t do big budget broadcast, print or photography.

1997: Jr Producer - 18k 1998 - 2004: Producer - 40k (With raises) 2004 - 2006: Sr Producer- 55k (with raises) 2006: Sr Producer - 75k (changed agencies) 2008: Sr Producer - 85k (changed agencies) 2012 - present: Freelance 100k + All Midwest Since the crash in 2008, it’s sad to me that Senior level Producer jobs are still hiring at 75-90k. 11 years and no increase is crazy to me. Highest I’ve seen/heard is 120k. That’s moving into Exec pay territory. Why is this? Creatives at mid level are making 100k plus! Especially when Producer’s responsibilities have grown

I’m relieved to hear u say that only because I wondering if it’s just me. I’m freelance NYC mostly Prod & sometimes Post. My rate should be 800-1k and sometimes is but you’d be surprised how many shops call asking for 550 etc. for staff which I’ll consider I hear 100k if that.
