A company in Wrocław Poland advertises a job of Senior Frontend Developer for a salary of "9 950 - 14 920 PLN gross on an employment contract (UoP)"


14,920 PLN = $3,822 US Dollars

Does that salary sound like it is monthly or yearly?

  • According to SalaryExporer.com the average monthly wage in Poland is currently 18,000 PLN. – user41790 Feb 8 '20 at 18:51

    @user41790 The number from that source is an outlier. The average monthly wage in Poland appears to be much lower, less than 5000 PLN. – nanoman Feb 8 '20 at 23:00
  • @nanoman Yes, their methodology is rather novel. It gives an average UK salary as being over GBP100,000 while the US average is given at about USD80,000. – user41790 Feb 8 '20 at 23:22

    This website is very much not trustworthy; at least it needs some serious factchecking. For example for Denmark it states that the average monthly salary is 137,000 (~21,000 US dollars). This is about 5 times more than the actual average salary. Seemingly they are switching up yearly and monthly a lot and hence comparing bananas and pears. – ssn Feb 9 '20 at 7:03

    Yeah, that numbers are totally bonkers. It must be based on some VERY small data set. The top range given at 79.8k also is very funny - i think noone would get that as salary (taxed at 32%) when as entrepeneur you can only pay 17% tax. I also would suggest that all the low paid people do not asnwer those questionaires, so you do get a VERY skewed median. – TomTom Feb 9 '20 at 8:19

On the basis that Polish salaries seem to be most often stated per month, and that a software developer job should have an above-average salary, common sense indicates that this is monthly. Moreover, the minimum wage in Poland is 2600 PLN per month, so it would not be legal to pay less than 31200 PLN per year.


I don’t know whether it’s a weekly, monthly or annual salary. What I do know is that you won’t survive in Poland on $3.823 a year.
