Default You believe what you want to believe

I am not sure why there is always constant calling of trolls. You believe what you choose to believe is real or false.

Anyway its just a forum, the fact that you are looking at this forum probably means u have time on your hands to read it. That means either you are an undergrad/not called to bar yet or called to bar but workload at job gives you some free time.

And no it is not weakling or what. The pressure is just too much for anyone to handle for a mere $2-3k salary. I had to give up so many things including a recent failed relationship of 4 years. We just distant apart very quickly. Always argue. Stopped having intimacy.

It is a joke sometimes when I see my partners in firm make so much yet I am paid so little.
isn't that the case everywhere? where the top management makes high figures while the bottom one get squeezed and suffers...

end of the day, it's a business... instead of being unhappy and affected, why not think of ways to get out of the shithole soonest? progression and etc... do you think those ppl had it easy to where they are??

if you cannot stomach the stress, then pull out... it's not for you... i'm not looking down on you but everyone has their own limits and tolerance... all the best

Front load means u get $67.2k. But rightfully if without front load I only get $4.48k per month and bonus 3 months.
So once front loaded u usually no more bonus.
it's a numbers game... assuming both front loaded and "normal" yield the same amount of cash, why not take steady monthly with higher base as compared to a lump sum bonus at the end of the year...

financially prudent and can F O anytime you want

1) stop complaining
2) if you are smart enough intellectually to complete a law degree, surely you can decide to either
2.1) accept the 3k
2.2) f.o. and be your own boss of which you have nil experience
2.3) work in mcd
2.4) do another degree in another discipline praying that you get a better starting pay
2.5) be a freegan
2.6) buy insurance for yourself and die now so your parents and loved ones can benefit out of it.

don't come here and act pitiful can or not?

firstly, studying is different from working... when you are working, it's business... no hard feelings...

i have seen so many "model students" who goes through JC, elite schools, local uni, turned professionals...

they are very strong (technically)... but suck at client servicing... which is equally critical in becoming a professional... no point being a know it all but can't get your client to like you and hire you

I am expecting a job offer from a german MNC for an in house job in singapore so I need some data to negotiate salary.
In the absence of any indication to the contrary for your particular role, I would suggest asking for a 15% raise on top of the market rate for 4-5PQE, then prepare for a downwards negotiation from that figure.

The other posters are generally correct in saying that most people do not get a raise going in-house, although having made the move myself after negotiating with several employers this all depends on the company and industry you are in. For example, most banks will NOT offer a pay rise unless they are top-tier "brand-name" (cringe-y, but crudely put) European/US banks, i.e. Rothschild, Coutts, UBS, but NOT Citibank, Standard Chartered, etc.

A German MNC might be willing to pay you more - so assess what industry this MNC is in, and what position this company has in the market.

Note also what kind of prior experience you have, and if they are aware or place emphasis on your last-drawn salary. Having worked in several top-tier European institutions now, I can say that most are willing to give you an increment from your last drawn salary. It is reasonable to ask for (or to even expect) 7-15% up from market rates for your PQE level if you have impressed them in the interviews/have solid skills to offer.

In general, I would pretty much in no circumstance ask for more than 15% above market rate.

Hope this helps.
