As an estimate, how much does the average NYC ADA make after 5 years? 10 years? How long does it take to make $80k+?
It's hard to predict because it's dependent on the city budget. Unlike the federal system, there is no guaranteed raise after so many years. There was a time where offices were rarely giving out raises, but recently, I've had one or two 5% increases every year since I started in 2014.
It may also depend on which office. Some offices prefer not to give out individual raises (except in the case of promotions, of course), and instead raises everybody's salary by a fixed percentage. There's definitely pros/cons to an across-the-board raise versus a merit-based system though.
You prosecutors are not very resourceful, are you? seethroughny!
Yeah as other anon mentioned, that's pretty much useless to me unless I know the person and therefore know how many years they've been there. A lot of people in the office don't use social media or haven't updated it in forever, so I also wouldn't know if they earn $X because they got promoted or if it's because everyone who lasts that long gets $X. I'd have to FB/LinkedIn stalk several people to try and figure it out. Which is a waste of time if I can ask someone here to give me ballparks.
In any case the "it depends" answers were helpful, thanks.
