In the Business Times about 2 weeks ago was a report from HRBS Solutions comparing the income of Singapore managers working locally and their counterparts working abroad.
What’s informative in the BT article are the numbers.
The article lists the “annual fixed cash + perks” of the various levels of managers working in Singapore:
- Manager – US$77,141
- Senior Manager – US$114,021
- Director – US$165,704
- VP – US$240,096
- Senior VP & above – US$343,419
So, if your boss promotes you to a VP, ask for US$240,096.
