(that's not CMS-specific that's everywhere-specific) 0 Vote up! Maybe 85k- 100k. Depending on exactly which office and team. 0 Vote up! would that include any bonuses? 0 Vote up! Excluding bonuses. 0 Vote up! well that seems pretty critical would the bonuses be good or like £50 for an M&S hamper at Christmas? 0 Vote up! not that hampers r to be knocked 1 Vote up! Disgrace that London NQ scrotes earn over a hundred grand a year big structural cost that will pillage equity profits this year Eyes moisten remembering low lockdown overheads 0 Vote up! Good ones must be pushing 130k all in and on the route to EQT? 0 Vote up! Bonuses at CMS are not great, unless you exceed the billable target by a lot. 0 Vote up! well the business model pyramid says they can't all be headed for partnership (and indeed who really WANTS to be a partner these days - GC ftw) 0 Vote up! Yeah but ones not on the way will get paid less 0 Vote up! Think the bonuses would be decent. Think 130k sounds a bit toppy in the regions tbh- unless individual is on the cusp of being made up. 0 Vote up! 80 - 100 k. Overhead is about 100k. So bonuses will start to arrive if they are invoicing more than 300k a year. 0 Vote up! woooft 0 Vote up! wait actually I have no idea what their hourly is 0 Vote up! All I know is that a two rosette pub chef is on around 100k. 1 Vote up! And zookeepers make around £180k… Would be surprised if Edinburgher CMS associate was on more than £100k. My figures are a bit out of date, but not so long ago McGrigors partners would start on around £80k. 0 Vote up! All I know is that a two rosette pub chef is on around 100k Bollocks. £60-65k in London and less in the regions. 0 Vote up! My window cleaner is on about 200k netnet + bonuses. Although he's a Senior Executive Vice President Associate Director now. 2 Vote up! Regional nq salary about 60k So 10peeker only needs to get 5k a year increase and reasonable bonus to be pushing 130k Range of 100k-130k sounds about right in that context 0 Vote up! Thing is Davos lot of the firms have ended associate lockstep - and have caps / limits for regions. In 2019 bottom of equity at CMS was only 160k. So think 130k would only be feasible if about to get the tap. Also depends on which office- imagine Bristol pays more than Leeds etc. 0 Vote up! Yeah true - if you hit the cap surely you leave though? Or do you still get inflationary salary increases? Taking a pay cut every year doesn't seem a sensible way forward for a solicitor? 0 Vote up! 90-120k 0 Vote up! Don't think you'd find anywhere that would pay more in the regions Davos - for a non partner. 0 Vote up! Refresh Back to board Join the discussion Login Register 0 Vote up!
