Electrical Engineer package

Postby Kewllot » Wed, 06 Dec 2006 4:54 am

Hi!

Got an offer from a marine company as an Electrical Engineer. Monthly is S$7,000 but am trying to raise it to S$7,500. Am I asking too much?? Only performance bonus is included in the offer, no other perks.

Am 28 yrs old and a degree holder, have 6 years of experience in a similar industry.

Thanks!

You have not indicated where your degree is from. If you are a Regional Engineer (Asian) The salary is fairly typical to be honest. If your are European/Western It's probably 3 to 4K light (minimum). However, this is subject to a wide range as you did not indicate whether or not this is O&G or Shipyard related or as a Marine Engineer (Shipboard). I am assuming it is Shipyard in my response. A lot will depend on your nationality to be honest.

thanks sms!

i am a filipino graduate from one of the prominent universities here in manila. the company is into acquisition and conversion of drillships. so it more belongs to O & G industry rather than shipbuilding. job description is land-based, conceptualizing design and inspecting design implementations.

the company didn't give in to my request of $7,500. i am thinking now of just grabbing the offer.

If you're from the Philippines, the offer isn't bad at all. It's comparable to the majority of good experienced Engineers from there that have been given the opportunity to actually practice as an Engineer as opposed to a Technician with a degree. If you are doing conversions then I would guess it's one of three shipyards here. I'm guessing "K" or "SS". Anyway, I'd advise grabbing it.
