Mechanical Engineer Degree 3-4 yrs
3000 (min) 5000 (max)

3k for 3-4 years of experience? Ain't that a bit too low?

On second thought, if you start the job at RM2500 and you stay at the same company for 3-4 years. Assuming annual increment of 3%-4%, most likely you just hit RM3000 by the end of 4th year.

If you want "on the higher side" - use Robert Walters survey (see link).

http://www.robertwalters.com.my/files/sala...survey-2012.pdf

The salary are based on basic salaries (bonuses can make a big difference, in particular for more senior positions and more performance-based compensation such as in investment banking).

There is another survey that is very informative to compare your salary with the average wage earners in Malaysia and the rest of the world.

I am working in an IT position but seems my salary just 4% higher than the Malaysia's average wage and out of the minimum salary of all those popular positions posted. Maybe I am freshgraduate and still under probation period hence I got this range of salary. Not sure if I'm underpaid or not as a software developer. hmm.gif

Very good information, as long you earn more than highest average (Luxembourg), you will be above average on global scale smile.gif.

Hi, you are good/fortunate to be earning Robert Walters' salary range.

Kindly note that Kelly Services' and Jobstreet's salary surveys may have catered to a different segment as compared to Robert Walters' and Michael Page's. Even among recruitment agencies - there are different types and categories. I am not a HR expert but I infer the above from my working experience.

This is very informative data, but you must remember that the figures are not in USD :
QUOTE
But these dollars are not normal US dollars. The economists use specially adjusted exchange rates - the average salary is calculated in Purchasing Power Parity (PPP) dollars. One PPP dollar is equal to $1 spent in the US.

Essentially, the PPP dollar takes into account the fact that it is cheaper to live in some countries than others. The idea is that we don't care how many actual dollars somebody is paid in, say, China, but we care about what sort of stuff those dollars can buy.

I did hesitate to post the Robert Walters survey in the first place because it may not be representative of the overall job/labour market situation in Malaysia - but I posted it after a couple of fellow forumers felt the Kelly Services' survey was on the low side.

There is a Chinese phrase: "Ren bi ren, qi si ren" - comparing yourself to another person will only frustrate yourself. I do not know anything on Software Engineer salary range (as I am more familiar with the finance industry) - have you checked the Kelly Services or Jobstreet surveys? If your pay is not even 1/3 of the Robert Walters numbers - please ask yourself is it the same industry? same number of years of working experience? same work scope? same level of responsibility? If after verifying that everything or most items are similar, only then can you consider yourself to be underpaid - then, why are you not looking for greener pasture?

I wouldnt take the Kelly services salary guide too seriously.

After all, they're a outsourcing job company, it's in their benefit to lowball employees as much as they can to receive a higher profit margin.
