Senior Art Director salary average? Any insights? Thanks

like

I work at a small agency. I asked for a raise and was told you can get one in a few months if you do X,Y,Z but also keep in mind you make (on the low end of) what your position should make. My question is—I wear many hats within my agency because we’re small and growing—So while I may be an art director, when needed I’m also a PA, or a production designer etc... SO shouldn’t my salary reflect that??

Please don’t accept a lower salary or rate from an agency because of where you’re based. The award-winning ad you make in a low-cost of living city should cost your agency the same as if you were in SF/NYC/LA. Make them pay us for our work, don’t give them a discount for something so completely unrelated to the job as where we choose to live.

I had an amazing review yesterday. Everything said was positive. And yet I didn’t get a promotion or even a bonus. Was told to keep trucking and should get one at some point this year. I do way more than what a jr would do at any agency and I really would like a raise and promotion. I don’t want to be taken advantage of but afraid that I won’t be hired as an AD without having that promotion first.
