Also those things like phones, maybe a new computer or iPad, a TV, etc. (you get the picture). Also what about normal weekend entertainment, dinner and a movie will easily set you back AED 300+ (without wine, in a good restaurant nothing fancy). Ski Dubai for two people AED 400...

And if you plan on shipping from the USA, this is also a substantial cost
Good call on discretionary spending. Even if I take out an additional 36000 AED for the year for those expenses, I still see myself saving a decent chunk at the end of the year (of course with the assumption that I am not paying anything to uncle Sam).

May I know what would an ideal package I should ask for, as per my research I was told 15k-18k AED+benefits is the package given in MNC's in Dubai and if not it could be between 12k-15k AED+benifits for Non MNC's.

Is the above salary package information would be true. Please share your opnion.

Saraswat / Lordaragon / Asdfgh plz throw some light.

thx
Sorry freewill, don't think I'll be of much help.. I'm very much a newbie here, and although I've known a few people in the HR, they've all been into relatively junior positions, and as such, their pay I know of hasn't been great, oftentimes, lower than the 12 - 15 + benefits you mentioned. Do a search of the salaries threads Part 1 and 2, you'd find quite a few helpful pointers tossed up..

Also, check if any of the attached salary guides are of help..

Cheers...

No what they are offering you is not enough ! Not only is it not enough for you to support your family, it is not enough on the basis of your experience and credentials.

Your current location says Bangalore but then the expat in flag is Australia, kinda confusing, in any case stay where ever you are, unless a better offer comes along. Maybe not what you wanted to here, but it's the truth of the matter.

18k to 25k per month will be a benchmark if you on a local package. Depends on company. Maersk on an expat package may work out higher.

Thanks for your quick reply.

Sorry, I was created my profile wrongly under Australia, but I am actually from India. I need to know if that salary does not meet the living requirements, then what should be the salary I need to ask them?

From my point of view with your experiences and technical skills, you should ask for
- 20k AED/month basis Salary
- 70k-100k AED/year for housing (You need at least 2-Bedroom Apartment or a villa if you wish). Take a look at dubizzle.com to have some information about the rent in different area of the emerate.
- 30k-50k AED/year for your school fees or maybe a bigger budget
- Medical Inssurance for self and family + Annual tickets return home for self and family.
This is what I see for a job that requires your experiences and technical skills. It would vary from company to company based on their size and their market.

Good luck

15k-18k AED is not bad, just make sure that accommodation is already provided by them as rental in dxb is expensive.
