My partner got a City of Toronto offer. Salary band is 104-121k. HR asked for his expectations and he said 115k. HR came back with a 106k offer stating nobody on the team makes that much so they cant offer it. Also said she is unsure if there is any wiggle room if any at all. I’ve looked at everyone on the team with the same titles salary on the sunshine list and the lowest I see is 121k. I assume there is an OT component of some sort but also can’t confirm. Thoughts? /negotiating advice?

Hey folks!

I’m a Graphic Design Specialist at a Marketing agency with a bout 40 employees. Started as an intern as a student in October 2021, graduated, & then contracted January 2022. I started FT back in March 2022 @ 48K, with a raise in December. I’m the only graphic designer in the agency and manage about 5 creative projects at a time. While filling in design work for our clients. What is a realistic raise?

I really want to work in an office again. I like putting stuff on the walls, talking with people, the serendipity of things. I think it benefits the work. Who else is looking forward?
