    Hi - I'm new to this forum, so hallo to everyone!

    I've been living in Thailand for 4 years, but doing software consultancy work for overseas clients. As such, I simply receive a monthly income and no employment benefits.

    However, I have now been offered permanent employment, based in Thailand, and involving short-term travel to other south-east Asia countries. The package consists of a base salary and 'benefits'. The benefits are not defined, and my employer wants me to suggest some!

    I can think of the following that I should ask for:

    1 - Medical insurance, (hopefully also for my family)
    2 - Company credit-card (else I will be paying out a lot up front out of my own money for the business air-tickets

    Anything else that people can suggest? I speak Thai, but would like to learn another language if it's relevant to my job, (such as Mandarin). Maybe they can pay for my language lessons?

    I don't want to be greedy, but I do want to make sure that I don't forget any important benefits!

    Thanks for your advice


    PS - Posted in the general forum cos there are more users and the Asia forum was full of spam!!

    There are more users in the other forums because the Asia forum has just been opened for 2 weeks :)
    In addition we try to limitate the number of spam messages but until recently there was not specific section dedicated to Asia so it was lost in the middle of the other messages.
    Therefore I move your message... ;)
