NY TO 190

Postby thesealocust » Thu Aug 21, 2014 12:25 pm

Some banks are raising junior salaries by 20%: http://nypost.com/2014/08/20/goldman-sa ... r-bankers/

A 20% raise in first year law firm associate salaries would take us to 190K

[realtalk: I'm guessing this is because living on 85K/year actually could be a stretch for somebody at an investment bank. A bonus doesn't help pay 2K+ monthly rent that a lot of people will be facing, etc. I'd be surprised if law firms increased base salary before increasing bonuses, and I wouldn't be surprised if neither increased any time soon. And at the same time, I doubt it would be a jump to 190; 170 seems a lot more plausible]
