Hey there. I recently got myself a job in Tokyo with a European software developer. I will have a meeting with HR soon to negotiate my salary and other benefits.
Now, me being from Europe I am only familiar with the average entry level salary from my home country. But I was wondering what I can expect here? From what I found out so far, it seems like it is not uncommon to have a low base salary but really big bonus payments. But does this apply to foreigners/foreign companies as well? What can I expect in terms of salary and benefits?
Just a little bit of background to give you a better idea: I am originally from Germany, passed JLPT N2, speak English fluently and have a Master's degree in computer science. The job is with a European company as a software developer. This is my first real job after graduating as well.
