    Age & experience play a big part, is it a large Co you work for ? what are you earning now ? what are other engineers on Co earning ?

    Can you do the job alone? Or do you need to work alongside someone for experience?

    Probably a don't ask, don't tell policy like my company. According to media best to move on every 4-5yrs or you get left behind pay wise.

    As said there isn't, all to do with how much the company think you are worth.
    As a guide you are worth 25% of what you earn the company, the rest goes towards training, holidays, tax and expenditures and making a profit that year.

    Your confusing.
    4yrs labouring & now on your own doing what?
    Are you qualified or just thinking about doing it?

    I think it is not worth chasing the money in the first place. I'd rather chase the knowledge first and then the money. It will come automatically with a pay rise . once you feel very confident and you can deliver good quality work with a wide variety of knowledge then you will earn decent. But then again it depends on what company you work for. A lot of companies do not care as people come and go. As @rpm@rpm has mentioned above it has a lot of other factors

    Perhaps, give it a bit more time before chasing the money and get more experience. I think everything comes with time and experience. But it is down to you.

    What`s with all the ! marks, you are coming across as a typical person of the "Instant" generation which doesn`t apply in the world of work and remuneration.

    Not in the real world with only 4 months experiance, as said before look around at wanted adverts, even apply for some then you will see.
