Might be paying the market rate of another country without the 20%. But as long as engineers in ST are satisfied for being short-change here in Singapore, and proud to say that they are an engineer in ST, then I think should not be an issue. lol.

Just to add, based on the market rate (govt's data in April 2016), it should be a 20% salary boost for the basic, with at least a 20% boost to the annual package. Annual package could be higher based on real life illustration found in the previous post.

Does this only imply for local uni fresh grad or any other fresh grad from private uni? Im sure Singapore report are mainly focusing based on NUS, NTU, SMU, SIT

I would suggest looking at the World University Ranking to gauge if your private uni is a 'good/reputable university' and then to analyse if you are paid the market rate.

Remember to take the class of honors you have obtained into account. For a fresh grad passed degree from a good/reputable uni, at least 3.8k basic for engineer and at least 4k basic for ICT related (as per reported on the news in April 2016, channel 8/U/CNA, etc. keywords --> 'good/reputable university degree')

The keywords 'at least' and 'starting from' also means no NS taken into account. with NS and/or honors should be at a higher starting rate.

currently E5 Software Engineer grading, worked almost a year drawing 3.7 under new scheme with no aws.

Am very interested in doing Cyber security related jobs in the future and possibly try out other jobs like network, System admin in the future.

Have some questions to ask the more experienced people here.

1) If i leave my current role(software) after 1-2 years and work in cyber security for about 2 years and decide to come back to ST(for job stability), would i be offered a E6 role with my 1-2 year software exp + 2years cyber exp? heard some people got offered 5k for E6 with 3-4 years exp.

2) Considering to apply for ST info sec side, wondering how i should apply for interviews as i'm currently working in ST also, tell the interviewers that i'm interested in cyber side and want to change job scope/role? and would it be awkward to tell my boss/tender after i get offer?

3) also considering to go outside of ST, i know the salary is higher outside but ST gives good job stability and decent progression. Not sure what to do.

might leave my current software role in like 1year or less, any advice?

Got a offer from ST, they offer me only 300 increment from current pay. Less than what expected. 2 year contract. I am currently in a perm role. Really difficult to ask for higher. HR so firm keep saying management won't approve. I dont know if this is their tactic to make you accept it.

Not worth to go from perm to contract over $300

Better to moonlight to earn that $300 and keep your perm role.

what if they offer you around 700 increment. Will you take the contract role from perm. Seems that all their new hires are under contract first.

Can consider if there's good chance of converting to perm role.

Hi all, after seeing all the comments here. Need some feedback here as i just got offered a sr eng E6 with very close to 5k in the land system commercial side. But I was abit skeptical is that ST dont payout aws. My current company is us mnc and im Engineering 2 taking 56k anually with 1month aws included, but there is no fix increment and bonus. With what ST offered, i will be getting ~59k anually excluding the bonus. Im currently 28yo with 5 years exp. What is your thought on this deal and the career progression.
