hmmm, i think if that person is a scholar and only in the service for 5 years, it is unlikely that he would get 7k also, maybe 6500 is the max.

that is excluding bonus. if he really get 7k, can you give us a breakdown of his past increment? curious to know too. Thanks.

from the website Singapore Police Force - Career

Home Affairs Senior Executive
With NS = $2,791 - $3,397
Without NS = $2,400.00 - $3,006.00

i think 2nd lower with ns should get at least $3000

That is the junior / senior pay scale if i am not wrong. For every grade, MX 10 etc, there is a junior and a senior sub grade and their respective salary range. It is just stats board way of making the "ladder" longer to climb

just my 2 cents worth.

I know we are all comparing salary scales for civil servants at different grades. However, I think we need to see the bigger picture and work on the strategy on where the different career paths will look like. For Civil Servants and even teachers, you pretty much can tell roughly how much you will make by the time you reach 40. You can even calculate how much net worth you have by then. At some point, all of us have to make a choice. Either you continue the trajectory (which is fine by the way) and stay in government service all the way till retirement or gain whatever experience and move on to the private sector.

A typical graduate civil servant at the age of 35 would have picked up another another masters degree, making about 7-10k/month. Transitioning to the private sector is hard. Looking at my batch, many don't make the successful transition, and quite a few end up retrenched or unemployed by the time they reach 40-45. There have been some great success stories as well. The successful ones tend to be those that plan ahead. The ones that don't tend to be those that drift along and suddenly 'force' to leave either they cannot stand their idiotic bosses (which happen a lot in the government service) or they have some mid-life crises and see their peers in the private sector doing better than them. Many of you will have to face the crossroad. Spend more time thinking about this.

all the best!
