I really wish the big law firms in Canada were as transparent about their pay and bonus scales as what we are seeing in the US. Does any Canadian firm share bonus scales??

I like the idea of a Canadian version of Above the Law. I find all the Canadian legal news sources are to afraid of upsetting Big Law to print useful stories. I’m sick of the self serving fluff pieces.

US firms don’t share but the world knows it’ll be leaked. You can start that trend here. But I think bonuses in Canada are more discretionary and less based on lockstep so it’s hard to leak the info. The salary info seems to be known

Salary grids are pretty much known. Bonus structure varies from firm to firm but I agree that it seems much more discretionary than in the US.

Should I jump to another firm?

Current firm at SC level - 105k base, typically 10% bonus. Great WLB at the moment as I'm staffed on a very lax project that will run through 2022. Enjoy working with my team, no complaints.

Another firm I'm entertaining for an SC role - 5k sign on, 130k base. They're ramping up their practice so are looking for people with my specific skillset. Have heard good things about their culture but I take word of mouth with a grain of salt.

Salary bump worth the jump?

Watching US salaries increase AGAIN and wondering why Canadian firms don’t have the same pressure to follow these raises. Is it the relatively small number of big firms?
