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?

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 .

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.

My roommate is a school social worker and it actually makes me sad for the kids she’s supposed to be helping. She’s a contract worker for the school making $55 an hour and during Covid her kids haven’t been showing up to their virtual sessions. I’ve asked if she’s tried calling them to remind them of their sessions or tried reaching out to their parents. She said that the kids and parents get email reminders of her calendar invites for their sessions and that’s the extent of her job (cont.)

I tracked change updated a client communication letter from a template and sent to senior manager. When SM sent to partner all changes are under his name. No difference to my version. How low is that?
