Salary range for PWC manager level?

Since starting at this company in January 2022, they’ve increased my base pay from 75k to 85k. Moved me in a desirable territory to maximize sales. allowed me to speak and train reps for what has been working. Given me the freedom to work strategies that work for me.

I absolutely love this company so far. I know my worth is higher than 85k base but sheesh. The way they value me and treat their employees right. Maybe it’s worth the lesser pay?

Hi everyone,
Currently considering a move to Toronto from London, either to a business analyst or consulting role. Wondering what the hours are like compared to the uk? Doing an ~50 hour a week on average and wondering if it’s significantly higher. Know America is typically even more than that but not sure how Canada stacks up. Any advice really appreciated.
