Some more facts pertaining to my current role. Total working exp since NS is 4 yrs. My part time engineering degree is from local uni. I am currently in MNC which deal with biomedical equipment.. current role is associate engineer, basic + allowance is around $3190/mth. Total bonus about 2.5 to 3 mths.

The new company which offered me also deal with biomedical equipment but I was offered as Engineer. Now basic + allowance is $4000/mth. Total bonus about 2 to 2.5 mths.

I did some calculation, the basic pay has risen up by 17%. The allowance in new company is $200 more too. There is also overseas training opportunity in new company. How is the offer? Low or high at my age and exp?

I think that biomedical equipment is a good niche field..

basic pay increment is good..

in terms of ur experience versus market standard, some forumers here have quoted high (80k) for 4 years exp engineer, some have quoted lower..

i think u should go for it, sometimes pay stagnation is the problem that makes us leave (not the job).. it is a fact of life.. its just a matter of time before we take the jump.. unless ur current role has significant benefits for u to stay..

biomedical field has good competition for employers to hire engineers.. so fret not!

all the best..

Thanks for the comment! I do agree the field is good which is why I decided to stay on this line. But it seems like the basic pay is not that good enough for someone who worked 4 yrs (jump from diploma to degree). However, I have signed the offer letter, still able to ask for higher basic?

yes i think starting from diploma would "delay" your pay versus market.. but that is the past and now u are reaping ur benefits as a degree holder..

i think it is highly unlikely that you can ask for a better pay after signing offer, plus it wouldn't reflect well on yourself as well..

work your very best in ur new firm, make sure u become an important part of the team, and the salary will definitely come your way..

all the best bud!
