My company is considering to move me to Budapest for ~2 years for a very critical role. We have not yet talked about the compensation in Budapest. Do companies typically pay salaries similar to Hungarian market or should I expect to get my US salary paid in forints? I am a very highly paid techie and US salary converted into HUF would be too high compared to the local markets there. At the same time getting paid based on Hungarian tech market would be very low savings for me when I return back.
My question is if there is any way I could get 5-6 million HUF/mo? Would there be any legal hurdles? Do you think if the company would balk at such a number?
