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.

Serious question. I constantly see income reports published that indicate only ~5% of the US population make over $250k, ~1% over $500k, etc. Is this actual W2 reported income? Do corporations have ways to compensate individuals so that their total comp does NOT show on their W2 (RSUs, Deferred Compensation, etc.)? Reason I ask is because I see great wealth all around me. I feel like these reports do not always tell the whole story in terms of TC & investment income.

I was never planning on staying in consulting for longer than a couple more years, but how much is the brand at EYP going to benefit me in the future vs a relatively unknown (but reputable) firm focusing on a niche market? I am extremely conflicted.
