Memo from Martin P Burns of PricewaterhouseCoopers

-------------------- Start of message text --------------------

Hi Jesus

Good to see a few ICML types here.

30k is a pretty crappy web salary, particularly if you're contracting.

If you're *good*, then look to be earning 40+ as a permie, or anything
up to 400 a *day* contracting. And ASP skills are always handy to have
to get into a job market.

Bear in mind that the average UK salary is about 18k...

2-300 a week should get you somewhere pretty good (although not the
Ritz - that starts around 250 a night, breakfast extra), particularly if you're
not fussed about living somewhere trendy (Notting Hill, Soho etc).

Subject:  RV: [thelist] Web work in London?

I work and live in Spain but I have been
in London for a while and have a few friends
working in net companies over there, so I guess
I can speak a bit about it.

Life is VERY expensive. And salaries ain't that

Example: You can get a 30k pounds a year salary if
you work as Web Developer/Designer. Before taxes. :)
And expect to pay around 200-300 pounds a week for
renting a room in a shared house. And London houses
tend to be small.

Food is damn expensive too as well as most free time
related activities such as restaurants, cinema, etc.
A tshirt tends to cost around 15 pounds.

managing large-scale Web application development.)
