If salary is lower and you want to negotiate, call HR.

Whether it is negotiable depends on the company and your CV. The larger the company, the less room there is to nego.

As for benefits, no idea. You have to find out more.

I highly doubt that. My brother and a cousin are in big tech and we share our salaries.
They tell me that the world likes to inflate their perceived salary for them.

Or unless your definition of mid-career is having worked 12-15 years.

Of course unless youíre doing IT Sales, like convincing an entire company to use HP for their staff etc, then I agree.

Maybe just a quick footnote here: i am the beneficiary of my current portfolio manager going back to her home country, and her putting in a recommendation for me to take her role.

Started at 27 because I undertook my MFE over at CMU right after local undergrad here in SG. But don't think this has any bearing on promotion trajectory

If you ask me ten years ago if I could see Singapore in such a sad state, I would have laughed in your face. Or do we just pop a xanax and see everything through rose-tinted glasses as we were taught in schools to do?
I totally disagree with that. The issue is not about stagnant pay but rather the increasing mediocrity of jobseekers coupled with 1) increased competition for well paying jobs and 2) alot of grads are caught in traditional jobs which are primed for disruptions.

I have seen good people joining tech with a starting package of $100k p.a. but these are few and far between. But there are many average joe in accounting and finance or business degrees which are primed for disruption and automation.
