current pay package
21d leave
aws (13th month)
grp health insurance
medical + dental
local company
working location: 35mins distance

new job package
temp to perm
14d leave
NO aws
medical + dental
starting pay is abt 5-6% more than current avr pay
working location: 75mins distance
Not worth the effort, annual leave like sai and travel so far only for 5% increment!? Forget it lar, in SG jump ship should go for minimum 20% increase. If itís jump to bigger role, can go for 25% to 30%.
