4,625.4001 a month is ok, you can manage, although you may have to live like locals. Rent is the biggest problem, are they not giving you a package? I'm sure some of the others will give you a good brief shortly!

Hi

I have been offered a job in a senior position with a multinational financial institution on a package of SGD 100,000 plus (less than SGD 150,000) I am told it is all cash (no perks/benefits). housing, also i have to support within this. for medical, the company will reimburse but not 100 pct. i am married.=, no kids as yet. i am from india.

wanted advise
1) if this package is commensurate for a person with 9 yrs experience.
2) is it good enough from a cost of living perspective. (for 2 people).
3) i am told that salary increments will be in the range of 2-5% every year and bonus maybe 1-2 months gross.
4) i am told medical is quite expensive and my company reimbursement does not cover medical payments like maternity etc.
5) i may be working in either changi or tampines so would probably require housing around that area... what are the current rentals like...

Cheers

Count yourself lucky with that kind of package.

Junior level ?? you are wrong.. some junior level can be $20k per year.
That is 20% of what you will be getting.

WOW..how well I wish I can earn that much when I graduate. I think you got to start your market research on rental. Wonder if foreign employees are bound to live in condos but anyway my sensei complained that the rental is shooting up. Take note.
