    how long are you in this job? this sounds like any other new fresh grad jobs I know of.

    If you look at your manager and say "he only assigns the jobs, shakes legs and gets good pay" and think you can do a better job, then you are no better than any other spoilt brat that wants good life and good pay without working hard for it. look at the intangible benefits of this.

    In your next job, your resume will have a lot more things in it.

    or would you rather be specialised in your support role for many years and have the following resume:
    Code:
    Application for Software manager:
    
    Experience
    2005-2007 : cad/cam trainer.
    support customer in cad/cam related issues.
    
    current salary: 1700, expected salary: 5000
    Tough training from the start will pave the way for a better future. The experience you gain from all the added responsibilities will be handy in future.

    you must at least save 1/3 of your take home.else, dont even think of getting a wife, starting a family.

    sorry for being blunt.
    jeanie... maybe u are not aware of today's context...it seems more afforable to have canon mark 1d than to have a wife or a family. If u dun believe.. go interview those who are married... i tell u.. they worried day and night about housing loan ! education expenses for their kids.. and their savings are often low... many people look rich in their condos and cars... but behind all those decorations lies an empty pocket.. bank debts.. loans and a fragile job security...

    Nah, not really new nor expert in this field but do have some experience in most of the major popular CAD softwares like AUTODESK, PTC, UGS, Solidworks.....all from past working experience while doing work while studying and some part time jobs with drafting companies......lol thinking back really feel the pinch after quitting from my last job which pay me abt 100 dollars more than my current job but with a company car and 500 buck petrol limit and that was only my 2nd job after my NS....1st job lasted for 2 weeks..... coz of the ulu location and travelling time spent.....

    live within your budget and u will be happy. who say need to worry day and night

    I got a new small flat (no condo / cars) and managed to pay off our housing loan within 3 years.

    No need luxury, zero card debts... and dun buy new lens every now and then. But happy.

    This is true to a certain extent bro..... have a family does have its pros and cons..

    At least there is something for me to look forward to..... carry my child, hearing their first word (papa), their innocent smiles... so many things leh. Just live within your means... life can still be fulfilling... just know one thing..... BE CONTENTED.........

    Cheers and have a good week end!!

    True

    Tho my pay is just a normal executive pay, I'm happy and contented. Dun overspend and be thankful.

    If got chance, go to some very poor countries, we'll know how lucky we are

    No need to compare whose pay high, whose pay higher , whose cars / houses bigger etc.

    Happiness is within. People may see this as deceiving ourselves. But who cares, as long as I'm happy, the goal is achieved

    The norwegian government has been quite free of corruption and doing quite well also. Just wonder is their minister pay is as high as the minister in Singapore or not, some more those country need to pay a much higher tax than Singapore, so they would have less nett income also.
