For banks in Singapore , 5k - 6k SGD as a start salary is a good salary.
Do not take settle for anything less then that.

Especially if you are not on Barclay payroll directly, the IT consulant companies or body shoppers who recruit for Barclays etc, will play games at you saying that your IT experience is less or you dont have Singaporean experience. all that is PURE crap !!

Well, I want to move to a more mgmt level role either vertically or horizontally for e.g. enterprise arch. level. I'm not getting that kind of an opportunity here.Most of the Singapore market is driven by body shoppers OR Contractual jobs. They have ruled over the years and continue to. By coming here as a 'techie'...According to me, is a short term gain you make. Because, you are only involved into coding as a developer or a senior developer reporting to either a caucasian or chinese boss more then usually Also...There is a difference betn software engineering and just a good a mechanic ! Unless you get into large Financial institutions like Banks, Insurance co etc, Its not worth it.

I dont like to preach, but just being technically strong is really not enough. EOD you need to analyse processes and manage situations on short and long term basis on your own.

I also found Singapore boring ..after sometime say about 5-6 months not much to do then just go to a mall and travel by the MRT. Not much or outdoor activities as well. I've been to other countries also. I'd prefer US, Europe etc from a weather, people, interaction standpoint. Defintely more activities to do. I still cannot afford a car in singapore, its darn expensive. Actually besides the tax, everything else is expensive.

I hope to make India my base and get deputed elsewhere in other countries through a CMM level co. then being full time here.

By the way, these are just my views and not to be taken generally.

Yes, Singapore is small country. Apart from Sentosa Island and some zoo and botanical garden there isn't much. I like the weather in Singapore from cold weather of Eurpore or US.

ok

My consultant mentioned that Interviews were held on 1st and 2nd for the shorlisted candidates.

One of the criteria's for shortlisting was experience in Investment Banking domain.
