Dear All,

I am a software professional with over 11 years of experience .

I would like to know about the expected salary level in RobertBosch - Warsaw for a professional with 11 years of Industry experience.

I have been offered 22000 pln/month (gross), which I think is less for the combination of IT, Experience and a city like Warsaw.

Could anyone provide the details ?

Thank you all

Many Poles would be happy to earn 22000pln.

@Alien Thanks, I guess that could be true, I just wanted to understand is this offer good enough for that experience level.

It depends on your area of specialty. Software professional is a bit too vague. But 22,000 gross is ok especially if you're not fluent in the Polish language.

If you want to get an idea of your net salary use this calculator. It's one of the best because it breaks down your take home pay month by month. That will vary throughout the year because the Polish tax system doesn't average out your net salary over the year (bizarre). If you're single, then your net pay will drop from July onwards when you go into the higher tax bracket, which is good to know in advance for your budgeting.

The only people earning more than 22k in a typical corporation would be very senior in the organization.

For someone who I guess is in their early 30s without management responsibility then it's a lot - certainly way more than I pay for IT staff (though that is outside Warsaw)

22,000 is not that high for a programmer though. A programmer with 11 years experience would be classified as 'senior' so even without a management or team leader role, they could expect 20,000+ in Warsaw. Of course it depends on what kind of experience they have and which sector they work in.

22,000 is not that high

Especially that the rental costs have risen extremely in big cities.
