84% Would Leave Their Jobs for More Money

The 2018 edition of the AdMonsters North American Publisher Salary Survey is coming soon! It’s been a year full of publisher mergers and acquisitions, layoffs and major technological change. While the forecast calls for mostly doom and gloom, overall, the industry appears hopeful about the future. We surveyed over 400 respondents from across the US working in ad operations in broadcast, digital, print, mobile, social and retail and learned that while 56% were somewhat satisfied with their compensation, 84% would consider changing jobs for a salary increase. Now, who was that who said money wasn’t a motivator?


The report looks at overall salaries by position, seniority, geographic area, and publisher type. Plus, we’ve collected data that tells the story of how well employers are doing with perks and bonuses, plus the report features data points for historical trends and other key findings of what it’s like to work in ad ops.
