Let me bring life to this old thread by giving some real world data.

I am in my 6th year of this profession, just been made a salaried junior partner in a medium sized local firm. Average pay is about 10k a month not including bonuses, and there is no CPF (apparently partners are considered self-employed).

My boss doesn't own my soul, but my hours are erratic, on occasion working 12-16 hours a day (not always).

I am sure that my peers in bigger firms are earning 1.5 times more, but they are also probably working longer hours.

Thanks for the realistic and honest sharing. In my opinion, if u are not given employer's cpf, then your "actual" salary shld be computed as 85% of 10k when compared to other salaried employees across industries since most ppl are given 15% employer's cpf.

Nevertheless, if this is the 6th year of work since graduation from uni, it's still a great salary!

CPF contribution is capped at 5k, so it's more like 92.5% of 10k.

big 4 should be about 5k, median bonus about 2-3 mths

some mid tiers can match the big 4, i would expect median to be 4.5k with similar range of bonus

for small firms, median should be 4k, with similar range of bonus

disclosure: i have only worked in big 4 so my info on mid and small are educated guesses, pls feel free to correct
