Default Hays Salary Guides 2009

Thanks to a comment from a reader, I got to know about the Hays 2009 Salary Guides.

After browsing through some of these guides, I personally think the salary ranges are on the high side, especially when the footnotes say "salaries are representative of the total package value, although exclude any annual bonus."

Here's a sampling of some of the salary ranges in the Hays Salary Guides:

My guess is that salary guides provided by recruitment agencies like Hays use numbers that are artificially inflated. They can write whatever they want, since they themselves come up with the report, and it's not audited by anyone else.

They need to give you jaw-dropping figures, so that you will question your current pay in your current position, and engage them for their services.

Frankly, I will only trust salary surveys done by the government, NGOs or other neutral parties without any ulterior motives. Unfortunately, very rarely do you come across a report like that.

Probably the numbers here are more for the expat execs who get a better package and don't have to pay CPF...

I think this was purposely made higher. So people who read will demand from boss or switch job.. This will be good for Head hunters..

Look, Hays is a RECRUITMENT company.
It is in the general interest of recruitment companies to place individuals with HIGH PAY vs someone who is paid significantly less as they are generally paid on salary multiples of the people they place.

Think about it.

... one more thing.
Hays (with an "s") should NOT be confused with Hay, who have a better claim at being pay consultants...

To Real Pay Consultant: so what are the real pay ranges? Does Hay (without "s") publish their own salary guides?
