Hello,

Does anyone know what the normal gross salary for a person with a master's degree in either architecture or building engineering is?

Speaking of the salary in a smaller city like Gdansk or Szeczin and not the capital.

There are no salaries for non-Polish speakers.

Search on job-sites for salaries.
Remember, that in Poland, there are plenty of young people with Maters and they speak Polish and know the ins and outs of the building trade.

As a employer- who would you rather have?.

How was I suppose to know that you speak Polish? Being a clairvoyant - or something?
Also tell me, pray, how are we suppose to know what the salaries of particular jobs might be.
If you are in the 'business' you should know.
Why did you do an MA without finding our what the chances of employment are and what the salaries are?
We have the same sources of information - the internet. Please look for yourself.

Hello terri,

I didn't say I speak Polish, I said that I am asking what the normal salary is for either building engineers or architects who do speak Polish and works in Poland (not the capital).

Also tell me, pray, how are we suppose to know what the salaries of particular jobs might be.

You can tone down your attitude a few notches, it's a totally normal question to ask, and there are many people with lots of knowledge of the Polish society on these boards. Some are even in the business themselves. I didn't ask you in particular, so if you don't have knowledge about the topic you can just leave the thread without answering.

The reason I am looking for info on this subject is that I am considering setting up an office in Poland (or the Baltics), taking on clients from abroad. And I am not asking what the pay is for those who speak a foreign language, I would deal with language training myself, so I am asking about Polish people, speaking Polish, living in Poland.

Sorry for the attitude, but I mistook you for an English-speaking person searching for work in Poland. If you had explained thre situation from the start - this would not have happendd.

If you pay them 7-8,000 gross, you should be able to find somebody decent.

Cuet16, there are plenty of threads about race, attitudes towards foreigners and all that. Please do take it up here:
Society, Culture or in another category fit for that type of discussion. I wouldn't like to see the thread go off topic. Thanks for understanding, and please do not be so scrimp with the period button, it does handle to be pressed ;-)

Can only give you a guide of £21k for a qualified structural engineer in Warsaw (when I say qualified, I mean 10 years experience)

There are no salaries for non-Polish speakers.

Not strictly true, we had a couple of English guys in our Warsaw office, one was a Director.

Our trolls are 100% free of bias. They hate everybody especially each other and sometimes themselves!

Hmmm. So that's about 9500 PLN gross per month. Is that for a Polish worker, speaking Polish at work? (I saw you mentioned you had English guys at your office).

If you pay them 7-8,000 gross, you should be able to find somebody decent.

I just got a reply from a school in warsaw (got the reply 19th of June, on my gmail) where they said that 7-8 sounded a bit high, "but maybe architects (and not building engineers) earned such money". Reason I asked the school is that I assumed they gathered statistics about such things, but they didn't.
