Hey guys,

I was given an offer of $8K SGP/month for a IT security role for a large software MNC.

Do you think this is a fair offer?

My bio:

Possess certs such as CISSP, Cisco, Checkpoint, Microsoft

Thanks.

Sounds about right. If you want more you have to have skills such as management ability.

Thanks,

I have been team lead for 8 people in one role and manager for 3 people in another. This salary is significantly less what I earned back in the US, but due to tax implications I may be taking home more. What I'm worried about is my long term career where the trend in my salary is steady not fluctuating.

AFAIK, an US citizen or green card holder has to pay the net difference between US and Singapore tax rate.

Umm, I think it seems a bit low based on your qualifications.

I know people in the Technology Division of a bank with similar credentials to pulling in >$120k per annum.

But banks will be banks..

Thanks for the reply guys. Yeah it is pretty low, much less than my last base salary. It's a software company so I know it's lower than banks, I didn't know this much lower though....I'll be thinking about it....thanks all!

sounds a little low. should be at least SGD 9K per month.

i'm a tech manager for an MNC with 11 years experience, and i'm getting close to $16K SGD per month basic.
