Default what's your view on this? good deal?

hi all,

i have been working for my current job for ten yrs, and feel like moving on in terms of prospect and better pay (current pay also on the low end of salary guide, very minimal increase, feel like stagnant after ten yrs).....recently i have been offer a job and the starting pay is only difference 5%, i did some research and found out that the norm is around 15-30%, so i have asking to at least get 10%, but they mention now on 5% and after confirmation will have adjustment, but cannot confirm the figure, that's the uncertainty. so my question is, should i take up this offer now, or keep on looking? since now is year end, will be getting yr end 13th month bonus soon, leaving now and getting a 5% difference compare to current average pay is very minimal....pls advice, thanks

you should measure the increment based on an annual package.
i.e. what is the VB dish out for an avg performer in past years?

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%.

even if 15%-20% increase, now letting go of year end 13th month bonus (1 month) is not really worth, correct?
