Lots of CD jobs at well funded startups (at least 5 years age) in NY now. I imagine these are small teams, but what would be a salary expectation?

In an internal where the other designer’s option in objectively not as good as mine. I swear it’s not my ego talking. But the CD seems to give more praise to her. Why does that happen? Is it over compensation? Anyone have the same experience? Would love a CD’s POV.

Had a great initial chat with a recruiter who then scheduled a chat with the CD’s. I’m super excited except the salary the recruiter gave was lower than what I’m aiming for. Do I go through the interview and negotiate again after or is that number set in stone?

I was interviewing for a freelance job and asked about the creative director (small, new company). The CEO said they haven’t hired one yet and it took everything in my power to ask to be considered for that role. He wants to continue the convo tomorrow. I have 15 years of experience and have done the job of people and project manager and directed large content before. Without the title or salary! How can I prove to him that I can bring value and expertise to this role (besides from my portfolio)

Anyone make the jump from agencies to tech? Any advice on what salary you’d request for an ACD (or CD) role at a Bay Area tech firm? They tracked me down and have been pretty aggressive about moving things along, so I may have some leverage.

A tech firm reached out, and I had a 30-min call with a CD. Went well and I agreed to more interviews. Turns out the next round is a “4-hour panel WebEx interview”. Their creative dept isn’t well established, so is it wrong for me to politely say “4 hours is a big investment, can we briefly chat about salary range, title, etc”? I kinda don’t want to go down this road for a lateral title and who-knows-what salary. If it was a better-known in-house shop, I’d go with the flow.

At the start of the month, spoke w a CD I knew about a spot at his agency. He said my salary request was a bit high & told me his cap. Fine, still interested. After a couple of weeks of nothing, their recruiter calls me on Thursday to tell me more about the agency and the role, then says the salary parameters & it’s $5k less than what the CD said. I told her the number he said & she said she’d talk w him. Did I just ruin my shot? And when should I follow up?

Favouritism? I got screwed over, paired with another art director. Same job title, salary, started at the same time. After doing good work together, I won awards individually, turned down a job offer to stay in this company...was let go and it turned out my cd who dealt with my pay etc and decided where briefs went had never raised the job I turned down with management, I was earning less and he had been giving the good opportunities to the other junior ad. Ended in me getting a pay off...

Is there a big difference in cost of living between NYC and LA? Moving to LA for a job and want to ensure my salary expectations are in the right ballpark. I currently make $130k and my rent (shared with my partner) is $2950. We already own a car together so we already have that in our world of monthly expenses, and would be road tripping out there over the course of a month. Also, I’ll be jumping from ACD to CD, going from media company to small digital agency.
