Question

Hello,

I have been offered for a position in Brussels. However I'm not sure if the annual gross salary is above or below range considering the job market/standards in Belgium. I have already searched previous posts here. I also checked 'payscale' but didn't find it accurate so I wanted to have your opinion:

What would you expect (Annual Gross Salary) with 10 years of experience if you have been offered a job from a Fortune 500 company as a Manager?

Thank you,

I have no idea as to what kind of salary you need to expect.

However,
In Belgium you should expect to pay at least 50% of your gross salary in taxes/social security.

It's also a good idea to negotiate family leave (plane tickets) for you and your family back to your home country at least once a year.

It's also a good idea to negotiate your new employer to have an accountant do your income taxes each year.

There are lots of things you can get instead of money.
