"Why do you come back to Taiwan?” - this is the most common question I encountered after I returned home from Silicon Valley.
As shocking as it could be for many people, I feel great coming home, especially with respect to jobs. Initially, it is common to have a huge pay cut, typically 1/3 of the compensation that one gets in USA, but with your experience abroad and language advantage, your salary may quickly raise to the previous standard. Considering 35%+ tax in USA, you may actually save more money in Taiwan, resulting in an increase of pocket depth!
For those currently living in USA, if you are planning to come back to Taiwan but are afraid that your compensation will reduce significantly, please feel free to talk to me. I was once in your position thus can definitely help you out!
