(Taking starting average salary to be S$2.5K/month)

Any thoughts?
Agree>>job switch may give you ~20% increment.

Dun not agree>>In ST Engineering, annual increment on average is ~3-4%, promotion increment on average is ~4-6%.(no such thing as +20% for promotion one), and people get promoted once every 3-4 years.

assume starting pay 3k, after 10 years with ST with 3 promotion, an engineer will get ~4.8k after 10 years with the company!!!

if you are a civil servant for 10 years average peformer, will hit between 6-7k
