Have salaries in advertising really changed over the years/decades? I remember in 1993 at Lowe NYC when the salary list was left on the printer... the CDs were making about $200k on average. That’s 27 years ago.

Working at an agency that has reduced salaries since March (like most agency people, I think). Only, there was no date cited that my salary would be returned to pre-COVID level. Is this occurring at other places? Should I rightfully be alarmed or is it simply because my agency (understandably) has no idea how long COVID will affect the numbers?

Rule of thumb for creating a freelance rate? I hear double your daily rate in salary... which is (SALARY/250)*2 or so. Is this correct?

2 months ago I was contacted by a recruiter who interviewed me 4 years ago at a different company and ghosted me. She clearly didn’t remember we’ve met before. So I did three interviews, talked start date and salary, got an offer, and ghosted her.

Attn: design directors! I make $60K, oversee design for a handful of global brands at a large Chicago agency, have 12 years of experience (5 in this position), and have 4-5 direct reports. I suspect I have the lowest salary for this level at my agency. I know negotiating advancement is about what I bring and not based on comparisons. I am just curious what other design directors in similar positions make. Spill it.

Why does it cost more to hire someone from outside of the agency than hiring a former freelancer in the agency as a full-timer? Also, the outsider’s salary is quarter of what the new full-timer is getting. The math just doesn’t add up to me.

I’ve been unemployed and have been in the final stage for a few jobs. I think one of them is giving me an offer this week, but it’s the lowest title and salary. The others are bigger companies with higher titles and more money, but the problem with that is that they’re not moving at the same speed. Thinking if I get it that the process will take until late September or early October. What do I do if it’s offered (other than take the job immediately)?

Salary transparency's been on my mind. It seems like now is a great time for agencies to implement it to help maybe attract better and more diverse talent, keep high retention, etc. Does your agency do any sort of salary transparency? If yes: How'd they implement it? What have been the pros & cons? If no: do you wish your agency had salary transparency? If you feel comfortable sharing your gender and age (or level) that would be interesting to hear POV!

In this current climate, a pay raise and promotion may not be likely. Do you stay hopeful and wait till your company is back in the green to potentially reward you for your past efforts or do you jump ship to another company who can pay you the right salary? FYI: you are currently underpaid by 20%, compared to what market average.

I don't think I'm super amazing at my job, but I'm also not so bad that I would be fired. I'm just..average and I haven't been able to get to that rockstar level. The issue is obviously me, I don't really grasp certain areas and I am decent but not great at client relationship. Assuming that my team, work life balance, and salary is decent, is this a sign that this isn't for me? Been in agency world for a while in a few different roles and I feel like I've just been average in all of them..
