I have been given a tentative offer by a renowned Danish Company which I need to confirm in next 2 days, they have given me 50K monthly salary and Phone with company connection Plus 5 weeks holiday as offer.
I am married with one kid and based on my findings in last few days through internet, I believe the tax would be around 35%. Thus, I would be getting around 32K DKK in hand. As far as Rent is concerned I think to find a decent 2 room house (1 Bedroom + 1Hall + Kitchen) would cost me 12K DKK including Electricity Heating and Water. My office is neat Gentofte area but we would prefer to stay near Lyngby or Valby.
Calculating all other expenses (including child's one) and considering Copenhagen one of the most expensive cities, I believe I would end up spending 24K a month out of 32K.
And in my opinion I think they are offering a salary on which I can just survive but not live.
FYI, I am currently staying in Singapore for past few years.
That's why I wanted to ask if I should negotiate my salary a bit to 55K monthly or 50K DKK monthly is good salary for 10+ years experienced IT Architect?
Please help me guys!! Its getting very difficult to decide here.... :-(
Thanks a ton in advance!
