So bonus is also 2 months and no AWS even if you reach very high level like Director?
all titles are inflated. u can be a senior manager and yet have not a single direct report.

I don't know about NUS, but senior manager in NTU will not get you 8k. 7k plus at the most.

I heard from my friend, whose siblings is working in NUS. On Fridays, they are allowed to go off earlier for sports activities etc etc.

Sounds like a 4 and 1/2 day work week for me? wow..

8k if you are a Deputy Director.

I understand that most E/P positions in NUS are on contract basis. What are the chances of renewing the contract upon expiry? Also, any chances of converting into perm staff? Thank you!

Any chance for a non-scholar to rise to superscale (~15k) on the admin side before 40yo? Assuming one joins them right after university...

Working in Admin in a uni? Low chance, though possible if you are head of a very specialised function like Advancement.

In the civil service? Got chance.

This sounds too optimistic.

I work in NUS a few years ago and was not aware of any Directors that are paid 15k in their 30s, especially if he/she just join right after school. Most mid-late 30s office incumbents are either SM (5-7k) or for the better performers get AD (6-8k). I would say for NUS admin side the correct answer is 0% chance of drawing 15k before 40.

As for civil service 15k is usually a high MX9 or low MX8, for a non-scholar to reach that level by 45 is already very rare; in their 30s haha personally I only know of 1 individual after working so many years in 2 ministries. So I reckon statistically the chances of that happening is <1% unless we are talking about sign on in SAF or equivalent.

TLDR for whoever got this kind of expectation better work in the private sector, a place like NUS cannot offer this sort of pay to do admin no matter how fantastic performer you are.
