Hey All,

This is regarding a new offer of employment from a company based out of India for their Singapore client. They have agreed to bear the travel expenses and the medical insurance at Singapore and have stated a monthly salary of 4.5K. Is this a good one for 5+ years of experience in java and j2ee related skills that I possess.. ?

Please advice..

Looking forward to your opinion from those of you all in IT and those in Singapore for me to make a fair decision.

If you are going to work for banking client, you can negotiate for 500 SGD more. Anyways, with this salary you can have decent savings (depending on your lifestyle)
