After years of looking for a job in Asia. I'm finally close to landing one. I am negotiating the salary package right now.
I realized that Thai salary (in a large Thai-owned company)will be lower than what I am making, but I'm thinkingthat the package should be equal if not better than what I have now. One big shock I have already is the school fees. I have a kid.
The internatonal schools from what I've researched are gouging both the expats and the Thais. There's no way an average Thai or even a rich Thai can afford these schools unless it's old money. And for the expats, this must be negotiated in the package because there's no way for an average professional with family can even come close.
Can you guys share some of the salary packages that you have experienced? What is typical?
How about housing allowance? I wish I don't have to live in the Ekkamai area, but it seems like it's the only way.
Do you also get car allowance?

The fees they would pay the school as part of your package would be much less that you would pay - as a farang!
I would respectfully suggest you hold out to get the school fees paid.
