Big companies with great salaries and perks in Munich for a Software Developer position

8 posts in this topic

Hello TT'ers,

 

I started this topic because I wondered if anyone would be willing to share (everyone is anonymous here anyway) their (or someone else's they know) salary (or at least +/- 10k) salary range, plus any of the perks these companies might offer.

 

I do know there are lots of factors (one of them: years of experience) and it not easy to get into such companies but this extra insight might even lead me or someone else to forget about such an option if what they offer is not worth it in comparison with my/our current situation.

 

To start with, I know for example, Zeppelin is one of such companies (one of my colleagues recently started with them - good salary (80+k, yearly bonus, company pension fund,...)

 

So, for example, this could be a template:

 

Company name:

Position:

Years of experience:

Salary/salary range:

Perks:

 

Please share, as anonymously as it goes.

There are already services including glassdoor, kununu and others that do this. Honestly, I dont think its a good idea for everyone to post these details here.

I don't think you will get more relevant data here than specialised sites. If you want general pointers: 

 

Junior SW dev 0-2 y : 40-60k 

SW dev 3-6y: 60-75k 

Senior SW dev 6y+ : 75k- 90k 

 

The number of years is relative. Some people are very commited. Others live a more "balanced" life and take  their time in learning new technologies. 

 

In my experience the salary is  more dependent on your communication, negociation skills and how bad a company needs you. Technical capability has a lower influence overall. Things are different in US - mostly because managers have technical backgrounds. Last time when I looked for a job, I got 6 offers from 5 companies I interviewed. None of them even bothered with a technical test. It shows the general approach. 

 

If you are good, go freelance.

If you are really good, pick a world class company (e.g Google, Intel).

That is true for most chat boards, but not necessarily this one. There used to be many more meetups than there are now, and I know several members, although most of them are no longer active.

Going freelance has certainly crossed my mind. At the moment I don't feel I have the necessary skills (yet) but will definitely be considering this. I have heard, however, that it is pretty hard to enter it due to lack of references but - obviously - everyone else already doing that had to start somehow. If someone has advice to share on IT freelancing - you're more than welcome!

Do you know of any IT company willing to give their employees more holidays in exchange for a pay cut?
