Hello!  I'd love to hear from you in response to the following ponderings...Thanks for your contributions.  (sorry if this is repeated!)
 
1.  What would be a reasonable starting salary range for the following candidate:
Ph.D. - top 5 school, chemistry  
Post-Doc experience
3 years of industrial experience
without USPTO reg. #
 
Looking to start at:
Very large GP firm who needs chemistry expertise in the IP dept.
In major city, southern California area.
 
I understand that 4 years ago, starting salaries were about $70K and after getting a USPTO reg number, $85K.
 
2.  What is the impact of 1st year attorneys pay increase to $160k on the lowly patent agent?  Is the agent's pay also increased considering the fact that the two share similar duties.
