Ad fish in Toronto 🐠

What’s it like moving from the US market (I’m currently a Jr in SF)? I’d like to move back to Toronto within the next 5-10 years to be close to family and friends. Should I expect a drastic pay cut?

Pay cut yes, but also lower cost of living vs SF.

It’s not that much different anymore. Well less than SF but in some instances comparable to NY. But yes- expect a pay a cut. Salaries level out here a lot lower range than US.

I'm torontonian who worked in NYC for a bit. came back to a promotion and more money. American experience goes a long way in Canada. but it has to be good experience. so, if you're at good agencies doing good work, you can probably expect more money when you come back. but if you work at crap agencies, or have a crap book, then it'll likely be about the same .

Do you think considering someone your best friend requires that they also consider you as their best friend?
