The thing is, some jobs are really harder to earn then others....

But again harder is defined differently from others, some may think sales is hard/easy, technical is hard/easy, muscle power is hard/easy but i think the hardest job is amongst the engineering technical research side.

Default Think twice

I also engineer. I feel overworked and pay is nothing to shout about. Working late nights are common & expected. However my job, though hard, is interesting. I always think of quitting, but after reading all these postings, I am finding that the grass is not always greener on the other side. Need to think twice before making decision

Its great that you are interested in your job. I have to admit, the grass is not greener on the other side, but maybe it has lesser predators on that side?

I have no idea why engineers, who can swap jobs with almost any other position and adapt faster than others are paid peanuts.

Maybe we (the engineers in singapore(ya, i am rnd eng)) should collectively take non engineering courses and change job!!

Poor and Stupid,

U r a R&D engineer? In which company? U have bachelor degree or Masters or Doctorate? I thought R&D engineer earns a lot?

I work as a maintenance engineer. Pay is normal (market rate). But bonus not bad, can get up to 5 months (excluding AWS).
