Default PSA Management Associate Programme

Good day to all of you,

I wish to know more about the management associate programme offered by PSA in Singapore. Maybe those who are currently under that program can offered me some advice in terms of the starting pay, allowance if any, the bonuses, the progression and as well as pay increment.

Anyway I heard from my friend that under this scheme, you have the chance of promoting to high position if you show exceptional abilities.

A little about myself:

-Fresh graduate
-2nd class upper degree in Biological Sciences, NTU
-Ability to absorb new knowledge and skills quite well
-prefer team effort and good PR skills

I hope some seniors in this forum can give me some really good in depth information of this.

Thank you in advance

All GLC management associate pograms are just slick marketing to attract fresh grads into joining what is essentially an executive job.

If you look at existing PSA staff at G-level, hardly anyone came from this kind of program. Most were either old birds who work their way up or high fliers parachuted in from other government related organization or global MNCs.

Graduates of real management programs by prestigious companies usually hit the 5-figure salary level before 30 yrs old. A typical fresh grad in GLC MA program before 30 can reach M4 level is already very rare.

In GLCs M4 is considered the entry level manager grade.

Business titles are different though, many are throwing Snr Manager, Director titles at even lower levels, but internally under career planning M4 is where they start to recognise you as a manager.

MAP advantage is they have more structured job rotation compared to normal fresh grads, but TBH in terms of pay and career progression I don't see much difference.

Many high performers from non-MAP or mid career recruitment end up moving up the ladder as fast or faster also.

If you want to stay in this industry LT, the job rotation opp for the first 2 years might be useful for jumping to big MNCs esp if you get posted overseas. Otherwise for staying in PSA, no difference b/w joining as executive or joining as MAP.

Anyway I've notice that most statutory board do not have such schemes. By the way anyone have any information about NEA's pay range and progression?
