RM5,000
I am a Graphic Designer in a Creative Agency company based in Kuala Lumpur.

I have 5 years working experience and I served in this company for 2 years.

My sharing:

My role has upgraded into project & account manager on top of the design work that I do. The salary paid to me for my work is definitely considered low for the load I'm carrying but I do not have any complaints because in exchange the company is training me to become better at what I can do everyday. In the end, you just have to be clear on what you want in life, in my case I want to constantly improve on personal skills, communication skills, conflict resolution, and management skills so as long as the salary is enough to sustain me monthly I'm good. My advice is, though money is important in life, what services or skills you can do and offer to other people will take you further in life. Based on research I'm certain that my current skills will enable me to obtain a more desirable salary but no other company will be as determined to train its employees as my current company does. Sekian.
