    550.000 HKD for software engineer (3 years work exp)

    Hello,

    I would like to have your opinion about a job offer.

    My employer (bank) is offering me the possibility to move to Hong Kong. The offer is about 550.000 HKD/year. Nothing else (I mean, they won't pay accomodation or anything else).

    I have about 3 years experience and it will be a Analyst position as a software engineer in the Trading & Sales department.

    I have no clue about the usual HK salaries and I would appreciate your thoughts.

    Thanks

    Pet

    Considering your experience, I'd say it sounds just about right, so you should probably go for it. Of course you need to find out what are your expenses going to be. Are you married, have kids, single, in a r'ship, what's your lifestyle...etc etc etc...

    As a base salary it sounds OK

    Considering that most 3 years exp Analyst Programmer/Programmer salary in other industries in HK is less than HKD240,000 per year, yours are definitely great.
