Public relations firms of all sizes are hiring as the economy rebounds — giving workers unprecedented leverage, according to agency execs and recruiters.

However, PR pros have little means to compare their salary, benefits, and overall compensation with each other. So Insider analyzed base salaries at some of the most prominent agencies in the world using 3Q government data.

When hiring from abroad, PR firms have to file paperwork with the US Department of Labor's Office of Foreign Labor Certification, which releases that salary information every quarter.

Insider used that data to create a snapshot of how firms compensate their employees. Salaries can vary widely between firms. An SVP at consulting and PR firm ICR can earn $175,000, while the same role at Havas' PR division brings in a base salary of $200,000, for example.

This information is derived from base salary information only. Many firms offer bonuses and equity options to compensate employees.

Our full analysis details the base salaries for roles ranging from associates to SVPs and managing directors.
