S&T(FX) FT position at a chinese bank

I'm as new as it gets on this site, but hopefully someone can give me some solid answers. I recently accepted a S&T(FX) FT position at a chinese bank (CITIC,CICC, ICBC, BOCI) in HK . I'm aware that it's not the most prestigious position out there. However with my stats, that's probably the best I'll be getting for a while.

Former Military - Officer(Honorable Discharge)
Top State School(UNC, UVA, UM)
Shitty GPA - 2.8

Current offer converted is approximately
61,000USD + 15,000USD (Starting Bonus) + 7,000USD (Relocation)
Not sure if they even have year-end bonuses, never asked.

My question is how this position compares with the HK BB's? In terms of pay/hours/exit ops? Is it possible for me to make a lateral move to HK BB's in a few years? Maybe a FX exotic desk? I was told that traders make much less in HK than in NY or London.
