Default is this 1 year contract worth?

A company offer me a 1 year contract. I am a diploma holder.

They offered me $2050. Which has no AWS, bonus and salary increment.

I am not entitled to specialist clinic and hospitalisation benefit.

And my one month gratuity entitlement amount is also sujected even through I have completed one year contract.

Do you think is worth?

It all boils down to needs.
In a perfect world, it's a crappy contract.
If you think they need you more, negotiate for more. It won't hurt at all.
If you think you need them more, don't bother asking in this forum.

Contract jobs is pro employer and employee are usually left hanging with everything to lose.

At the end of the contract, you still face the possibility of being out of job again.

Moreover, the pay is not fantastic to compensate the benefits.
For example, you fall sick and have to pay 40 dollars medical fees from own pocket everything.

At the end of the day, what matters is not the pay issued, but how much you can bring home deducting all this expenses.

However, after weighing these factors and you decide to take up the job, at least you will not be caught unaware.

Depends .

R u trying to break into a new function/industry with no experience ?
Example, jumping from MNC to bank etc

If so, then i might take it because experience may lead to my next job if i am getting no where in my current role

dont just think about the pay in the short term. Make sure u know why u r taking this role and for what.

Anyway, take 1 year can still serve notice right if u find something better.

And when u are young, must be able to take the risk eg hospital and medical .. do u really need it
