reported. It will be the first time multinationals in the city have given employees a double-digit raise in one year. Wage growth has been around 8% over the past four years, growing 8.9% last year. The survey also revealed senior engineers with more than 10 years of experience will receive a 13.5% raise and their income gap with rookies will be widened from 350% to 500%. An average senior manager will receive US$88,117 (RMB601,000) a year, compared to US$33,869 (RMB231,000) for an average medium-level manager.
