Hi, To share my experience who are looking to exit. I am a director at KP, YOE consulting 12 years at 200K base 15% bonus:

TD / RBC AVP, 160 - 170K Base 50% bonus + stock, etc.
CPPIB D, 150 - 170K base 50% bonus
CPPIB MD, 180 - 200K base 100% bonus (yes, 100%)
Magna, MGR 175K base max
SAKS Off 5th (US), D, 190K Base 15% bonus
MLSE D, 140 - 160K,
Kainos, architect, 190K base max.

I ended up with a US based HR tech firm, Architect: 230K CAD 15% bonus stock options.

Hope this helps!

Way to pay it forward. 👏. And nice exit. Well done

Thanks! I am very grateful for being able to find this opportunity. Local CA / TO firms, it's really hard for them to pay 200K+ base, just the market geo and tax systems. Unless you get to VP+

Congrats! Was the cppib role for strategy / analytics?

It was for their Tech & Data group.

Why didn’t you take the AVP role at TD/ RBC? Your overall TC would have been greater and probably path to VP in 18m to 24m. Didn’t realize bonus would be 50% but I believe it was mentioned offered more as a way to match your TC. Congrats some great exit opts you had. Did you apply or they reached out to you?

I don’t know about banks offering 50% bonus. Which teams? I had an offer from Scotia and CIBC at the director level and their bonus target was around 20%

I received a similar but slightly lower offer. Variable comp wasn't quite 50%, but a big portion of the was in stock, so not "bonus" per se.

The banks offer 50% bonus for AVP? And how much stock?

The avps also have stock comp, so my offer was half incentive comp (bonus) and half stock

Care to share insights on MLSE? They seem to be hiring quite a bit

They did tell me that in the new year, they would have more postings out. They were a bit slow in NOV / DEC. So I guess they are getting back on recruiting. But the time between my interviews and application was quite some time as well. Maybe they are just swamped.
