i have been working and living in beijing for 6 years in a Us listed chinese firm. My first 3 years at the firm was regional sales executive and then got promoted into the firm investor relations department as IR manager

my current salary is SGD 5.5k monthly after tax ,with about 20K- 30K USD worth of options depending on share price. i would like to join a local poly. Can anyone advise if it is possible for me to get 90k -100K per yr as a poly Senior lecturer?? my area of expertise would be marketing/ finance.
unlikely you get the poly job. I don't understand why you want to be back to singapore. I don't know how old you are, but I would take the opportunity to build my market value in China.
1) 6 years in BJ and I surprised you are not moonlighting or making side income elsewhere.
2) re-do your MBA. take up one from CEIBS or 北大,清华.
3) buy property if you can afford it and i believe you qualify to buy property in BJ now. Wait for the right time to buy one.
4) network like crazy. especially out of our industry. so much opportunities.

silly to go back. your motivation to go back is to get a marginally higher pay with a dead -end job. it shows a lack of vision and imagination. spend more time with your chinese colleagues and learn from them.

I live in Beijing, by the way.
