I'm already at 6K after 2 YOE and it's pathetic, cannot even buy lowest end car or condo without overstretching.
Working with 13 yr exp, NTU degree, only 94k/annum....I think I consider a loser

I think that person is asking those who big cannon to do so with moderation. At least sound realistic lah. With reliable official statistics 'googleable', yet so many still don't have the idea to check it first before commenting. I have been working for 2 years only and I thought I was so poor but checking the stats someone linked to I saw I'm close to median already. So really true, too many big cannons here. Ask for pay level should always check official numbers not read forum.

A C+S engineering can be a rewarding career financially but I really have a lot of career luck and angels. Share option / company ownership is a key part of the remuneration for me. It is true about long hours, challenging tasks, high risk, stressful (when things don't work).

Unfortunately, engineering in SG is getting really bad rep with some SME paying poorly and exploiting foreign engineering talents. It is pretty depressing to read some of you are struggling with $3-5k for years with bad bosses and experience. Thought i will share my journey to add a positive data point.

The industry is changing though. There is a significant move towards digital technology and design automation - especially in the MNC and SG orgs. I have a lot of joy and pride being able to point to various buildings and tell my children that I am the designer.

Hey guys,

Does any know those big C&S consultant firms, which one offers higher salary and better career progression? Such as Surbana Jurong, Aecom, T. Y. Lin, KTP, CPG, Merinhardt, WSP, KCL, Mott Mcdonald and etc.

I'm a design engineer from SME looking to join a bigger consulting firm. 2 years experience in main con + 3 years experience in consulting firm. How much should I expect for those big firm?

Thanks.

2 YOE @ 6k definitely cannot let your buy car or condo la! the issue is not about 6k pay, is your cash savings and CPF not enough because you only have 2 YOE. today with 2 YOE give your 10k also may not let you buy a condo. 6k is enough to let you own a condo unit provided you have worked and saved enough to pay the 25%. because I owned my 1st 2 bedder with a 6k monthly salary

yes, initially i am able to get my unit at roughly the 8th-year mark, however, because I went to spend some $$ to get a post-grad, so i got my unit at the 10th-year mark. starting pay wasn't high so i took a few years to save and also build my cpf funds.
