Firstly, I think thats the first time I ever said "What Do You Think of My Package".
Anyway, like many other people on here I just want to gather some opinions on what my company is offering me to relocate to Hong Kong.
*I will be paid as a local and will keep my current US Salary of 75k
*I will be given 10k USD as a lump sum to help me relocated, buy furnishings, etc
*They will pay all apartment broker fees I might incur in finding my apartment.
*They pay all visa costs
*I get one flight home per year
Now the one thing that they did not include was any type of housing allocation. Obviously I am getting an increase in salary because of the tax reduction but I see so many people on here getting huge housing allotments so it struck me as odd. I have figured out my monthly salary at around 37500HKD and I am single so I definitely think I can live off that easily. This is also an opportunity that I want to take just for the life experience and it can't look bad on a resume either. I'm also figuring that with current market conditions I might be better off in our HK office rather than New York City as we seem to be expanding here and contracting there.
Thanks for any thoughts.
