Salary research help (Toronto)


Recommended Posts

When applying to small firms, what resources do you use to conduct research as to what the market rate is for your year of call? 

I have tried looking into RobertHalf's and ZSA salary guide but also spoken to recruiters who told me the market is usually less than what ZSA has. Big firms are so simply, whatever they offer is whatever you take. But small firms have so much negotiation that I honestly don't care for and would rather them just pay me what they usually pay their X-year call. 

Right now I am looking into small firm salaries on bay street. Anyone know what the general range is? Do I assume that because they are on bay street their salary must be higher than the strip mall small firms? I am thinking $80k base for around ~1400 billable hours for a first year.
