Hello, I got a job offer in Aerospace Industry at Eurocopter as a Design Engineer. I have close to 8 years of experience at Boeing in US. 5 years as a Design Engineer and 3 years as Manufacturing analyst. EC gave me an offer for 48,000Euro/year. I have originally asked for 60000euro/year as my salary expectation at initial phone interview. I called them but couldn't get a hold of HR manager to negotiate the salary. Is it acceptable to ask for 60000 euro/year or should I lower my expectation. I speak German and on the contract doesn't say anything about 13 month pay or Christmas, vacation or bonuses? Can somebody give me an advice. They also promised to pay my moving expenses. I will PM some of you that seem to work for EC & EADS. I'll try calling EC HR manager tomorrow.
