Default Which companies has high or low salary increment?

1 of my friends fresh grad, starting pay 3500 but after 1 year gets 4100.

That kind of sparked this question on what companies are known for low or high salary increment (as well as initial pay)

Local GLC stock $3.7

annual increment 2.5 - 3.5 % for C/C+ grader, base on 3500 as basic, shall be $87.5 - $122.5.


A ~ 5%

do the math your self

No. My friend joined a US MNC on a 1 year Junior IT BA contract after graduation. Confirmed as IT BA near the 1 year mark. Work Location Singapore.

Not sure if I should name the company as she occasionally visits this site from what I know (a few times a year maybe?). But it's not an IT company nor a bank.

Just a short introduction. I am a software engineer working in a startup environment. Owning to my overwhelming job scope and dev skills, my salary starts hovering close to the 5k mark in less than 2 years. (Graduated for 2 years)

Over this period, I have been contacted by different recruiters from LinkedIn and calls.(I normally ignored) This time round, a recruiter states that I am overpaid by the SG IT industry.

Am I?????

The recruiter only know which university you come from and how many years of job experience you had. Incomplete information. So it's hard to say. She may also say it to get you to lower your expectations so you don't ask for higher pay.

For me I worked before going local uni and frankly as a poly grad I did the exact same stuffs as the local uni grads in my ex-company but my pay much lower because I'm from poly. I even get to manage uni people. After graduating from uni, when I went for interviews, all the interviewers are saying that's before university, so it doesn't count.

Which pisses me off somewhat to discount it away so quickly

hahaha.. Maybe Singapore has a systematic way of underpaying engineers.

From my colleagues in San Jose, it is way better for SE to move into States with H1B1(Singapore got a lot of quotas left)

see in absolute dollars form instead of %

$500 increment on base S$3-4k compared to S$6k. the percentage is different.

also look at which stage of career you at, just promoted or stuck there very long...
