Project Manager in Construction Company
 
Good Day Everybody,

I am new here. I would like to ask about Project Manager's pay in construction industry as I find it is particularly low compare to other.

Please consider,
Industry: Construction
Company: Local SME (Contractor)
Title: Project Manager
Experience: 10years
Age: mid 30

Monthly Basic salary: $4.5k + allowance $250
Annual income hardly reach 65k after bonus.

I think I am underpaid. How is the pay for a Project Manager of similar profile, especially in MNC? What is the prospect of me moving to MNC (and higher pay)?

Thanks in advance your time and contribution.

I'm a project manager as well, but in Information Technology. 11years experience, annual salary around 180K excluding bonus

I think you are underpaid.

Project Engineers (in construction) are paid even higher than what you are getting, depending on which company you join.

I'm wondering if for example, the TS decide the quit the company to join another, the new company;s hr will definitly ask for his current pay. Will it hinder him from getting paid what he is really worth?

to ur local sme company, u r already overpaid.

u shud look at the kind n scale of the projects u r undertaking, and compare relatively.

switching company could be a wiser choice for a start.

Project Manager (Construction)
Based in Dubai
$300K SGD PA (Accommodation, Transportation all paid for. Bonuses not included)
5 years experience
Mid 30s

I'm lucky.
'cos to be a Project Manager in Singapore, I need to clock at least 10 years in the construction industry

Luckily I chose to work overseas where they recognize that talents do not just come in the number of years clocked, unlike Singapore.

This is extremely low pay for a project manager. I am also working as a project manager in the local construction industry and my pay is $9,360 basic.

I seldom hear of project managers in the construction industry working for a main contractor getting paid less then $6,500 basic nowadays.

It really depends on how capable you are as a project manager, and also the financial health and size of the SME you work for.

I work for a local SME as a project manager (main contractor), and I am paid closed to $SGD130,000 per annum before bonus. After factoring in my anticipated bonus, my pay for this year will be closed to $SGD200,000.

But I have proven my capability and worth to the company for quite a number of years, and I am getting what I deserve.
