All,
I had posted a couple of months ago about moving to Brussels (I am based in the US). I have a tentative offer with a big international company as a J2EE developer/analyst. They are offering me 3500 euros/month (before taxes - there are other benefits like meal voucher+pension plan +insurance)...is that par for the course in Brussels? [Quick background: I have 5 years experience in the J2EE domain]
Thank you

Hi Vinay,
I think 3500 EUR/Month is ok.

3500 a month is more than OK with 5 years under your belt, it's well above average.
I work near Utrecht (not that far away, similar cost of living etc but taxes are higher here) and I get 2700 a month before taxes.
That's slightly below market average here, which hovers just under 3000.
