Curious about leadership compensation - does anybody have an idea on what partners make? And the scales for that i.e new partner who’s still “salaried” vs. equity partner of a offering vs. Consulting lead vs. CEO ? I’m in the Canadian firm so info for that would be ideal but other countries/firms would be good to know too.

If I know how many attorneys there are at my firm, how many equity partners there are, the hourly rate associates and partners bill at, and the yearly billable requirement is it possible to estimate how much an equity partner would take home on average? Or are there too many other factors? I’m just curious. Our firm is super open about how much everyone makes (from associate to C and B partners) but idk how to figure out equity.

Is it really worth staying until partner? Is work life balance any better? After taxes, insurance, mandatory contributions, interest, etc. isn’t your salary half the gross? I know it’s a lot but still

What should I consider before moving to industry? Currently at a partner and have an offer with the same comp and similar benefits. I see it as a way to get out of consulting and better WLB. Thoughts?

I feel like a well liked and fairly competent, experienced staff member, but I’m not sure if I’ll ever have the kind of drive that some of the partners have at my firm. I’m a solid 60 hrs a week person that cares about relationships both professionally and personally. Is this the right place for me LT? Should I make the move to industry? It doesn’t seem like the comp makes sense if your don’t make partner and I don’t know if I have the passion for it.

I don't know partner comp. at my mid-tier. It's looked down upon to discuss because we value balance > comp. I align with the value but this shouldn't be a mystery. Nothing on glassdoor too. Ideas?
