I would be very grateful for some advice on this forum, as I have recently moved to Hong Kong for my husband's job, and am in negotiations with my old US-based company to work for them out here...
The problem is that they are only willing to give me 10 days vacation per year (at around $32k per month comp), and as a European that number of days seems extremely low. They don't have someone working in Hong Kong currently (so I would effectively be opening a new office for them), but they are wanting me to be consistent with their Guangzhou office which only gives 10 days.
As I'm still relatively junior, and don't speak Cantonese or work in finance I'm wondering what a company based here would give me, bearing in mind I would be hired locally and not have expat status?
Am I being naive thinking I could get a better package with another company here?
I would very much appreciate any input. Thanks!
