Do you all have numbered accounts in Zurich?

You dont need to tell me that money is'nt everything but do you come in late for work on Monday morning explaining to the boss,
"Sorry, but I couldn't find the keys to my Porsche!"
How much do y'all get paid or expect to get paid when you start working? I realise it will depend on experience and talent but what would the range be?

I graduated from U.C.D. in 1992 and have been working for a medium sized Cork based firm ever since. I started off on £27,500 per annum and am now earning £33,000. You will never make a fortune on an Architect's salary, but if you are talented, I would reccomend starting your own business. It is more stressful but the financial rewards are greater. That's my two cents anyway, good luck Matt!

In the current economic climate - job shortages etc.. - the employees are calling the shots, £30k seems average but wont intice any off-shore accounts, I'd recommend the early afternoon appearances, outrageous bonus demands & scantily clad receptionists, any grief from DeBoss - your outa there & he knows it !

Loadsa nixers help make up the deficit, where one can indulge in fast cars, late nites & broadminded girlies,
