SG firms are stingy and therefore compensation is top-heavy. In the UK/US firms, the difference between an Assoc and EP is not as crazily high as in Singapore. For example, EPs in Singapore big4 may earn 100x-200x the compensation of an NQ/1PQE assoc, whereas that difference is far less in UK/US.
Bro, you ho sei bo? NQ = 5.8k, EP (x100) earning 7 mil a year? Unless you’re the top 3 lawyers in Singapore, who you kidding?

And if you x200, EP earning 14 mil a year? You hoseibo?
