I have 9+ years of experience in Oracle CRM (IT) and have been offered 7800 SGD per month. I am relocating with my wife. The salary is sufficient to survive in Singapore and have some saving at the end?
That number is very much above my current pay grade, but for 9+ years, I was thinking you should be 12k +
And that’s affirmed by the few placement guys I know.
And to answer your question, yes, you can make do, but if a child comes along, you won’t have much left (unless you are from Sub Con and know how to live on a shoe string).
Thank you ecureilx for the reply.
Initially when I got the offer, I accepted it after doing bit google about salary range and asking few of my known (friends) working in Singapore.
Now, as days are passing I am getting this feeling that the figure offered to me is not that good. Issue is that in the offer letter they have a clause which says ” If you don’t join the company on the said date, you have to pay 1 month of your offered salary and the expenditures occurred for your visa, interview etc etc” which in my case may go up to 8000-9000 SGD
Can I deny their offer now without getting into legal issues or I am bound to pay them if i don’t join ?
I have given them signed copy of the offer as my acceptance.

The company may not get the EP for you… 9+ years of experience should pay more in a specialty fields like Oracle. And unless you have already signed a contract agreeing to it, I would not pay anyone any money if I don’t take the job.
