Welcome to the Ranch

Have you tried
1) Looking for similar jobs in Mayalysia? Many job sites give salaries they are willing to offer as part of the job description. That should give you a fair idea of the market
2) Check out glassdoor.com It contains company reviews including salaries. Check out the salaries for your company. Then compare with similar companies

This is a true story.

A person, who was PhD in Chemistry got a job offer outside India as a QA Manager in a company which made biscuits, bread etc. He took the offer, shifted and commenced work. Over the period of time, he got to know other employees, in his team as well as outside the team. One day, he met a Danish gentleman who too was a PhD in Chemistry and worked as a QA Manager in some other department. They hit off well, having so many common topics and both being foreigners in the country of work.

Eventually, one day, it so happened, that the Indian person realised, the Danish fellow was getting paid more than him. He went and met his manager
Person: I am not sure I am getting my money's worth. The Danish guy and me, both have same qualifications, experience and both of us do the same work. However, I think he is getting paid more
Manager: True.
Person: Huh? What do you mean true. Why am I not getting paid the same?
Manager: Because, during your interview, you did not ask for that salary.

Moral of the story: Your salary is what you think you are worth.

Hello Maneesh,

Thanks for the reply !

What i meant is I am still not sure what my company offers for the onsite lead position for Malaysia.
So it will be helpful to know the salary range for a lead position before i can make any commitments.

I googled and searched on glassdoor.com as well, but didn't get any satisfactory answers.
Hope to get some answers here.

no wonder he is so sad, he hasn't seen this tiny ad:
