Sh*t Canadian Salaries have me feeling Demotivated
I've complained about it before, but holy fck are Canadian salaries abysmal across the goddamn board. How the hell do the Big 4 accounting firms get by with paying such sht wages in this country. All the Big 4 Strategy arms pay absolutely awful ($60-70k CAD compared to $80-90k USD for the same f*cking work), the only firms that pay market () have one office (Toronto) they actively hire to.
The irony is that Canadian offices work closely, sometimes on the same projects, as the US counterpart, and yet get shafted. especially in Big Four Strategy arms. The All-In at Big 4 Canada is $70-80k and the verified equivalent is $100-$120k.
On top of that, most consulting firms don't even consider the Canadian market until the MBA level even though some work on the same client.
With all this, I'm feeling incredibly deflated and demotivated. I wish I had been born in a country that offered non-sh*t paying jobs for educated positions. I imagine a few of you will be like "well, you could be worse. Unemployed, in a labour-intensive job, etc." - Well, I studied four years to not be in a bad position. I did my research thoroughly, but I can't change external factors like how consulting firms won't easily sponsor Canadian talent when the US market has an ungodly number of UG Consultants at their disposal.
