EPCI is definately a good choice for engineer but with the money you get, be ready to take the same amount of hardwork compare to other industry. The money you get always proportional to the work. (at least before you become a boss)

Any, I am not from Singapore. I am wondering a salary of 7k monthly for 4yrs experience, is it consider good in Singapore? There is an O&G company approached me and trying to pull me into Singapore. Need some advice from you all.

I guess the subsea equipment manufacturers should also pay quite well ?

I think is decent for this speciality. I suppose the job is subsea engineering say installation or projects with EPCI. I suppose these EPCI don't offer high variable bonus. Using a 14 month annual package, 7000 will give you close to 100k. U should request for housing allowance and ask how much is the offshore allowance if there is a need to go out to the field.

Stop whining and get a life. Engineering is very wide. Your pay package depends on the industry that you are in. If you think your pay sucks, go and change job to a better paying industry.

mm... my initial increment is much higher. During my first few years as engineer, increment was 8-10% average or 20% during promotion.

BTW, how much can an engineering manager (entry level) earn on average?

I worked all my first 12 years in the technical line. now switching to manager because brain getting stupid... just ask other people to do...

Some say promotion is 3 + 6%; some 20%. Any HR out there can advise what is the range in general?

i'm not too sure if having 5yrs experience in the SURF industry can hit $100k p.a.; as i've only got slightly > 2 years of experience. alot more to learn.. and will only complete my M.Sc (Offshore Technology) in end 2014..! still a long way to go.

and yes, i'm with one of the EPCI companies.

i'm thinking the same too; Cameron and FMC should pay quite well? *shrugs*
