Another large firm (Lewis Rice) is also upping its pay to $125k. I'm also hearing reports of increasing SA classes.
$125K is a monsterous salary in St. Louis, given the cost of living. I'd much rather do that than work in NYC for $160K and throw half of that down the drain on taxes, cab fare, and rent.
I hope things are getting better here because I bid highly on a lot of STL firms.
