I was exactly in the same scenario as you.

You may be fine now as new joiner and all, but once you realize your growth is stunted right from the start, i.e. your starting grade is lower than what you are supposed to be, and that your boss, no matter how nice, will have no power to accelerate your promotion to match what you are supposed to get, then you may revisit your position again.

unless you are here for the short term that is

Or more like:

HR and senior management would rather the person scoot off him/herself, and then later hire someone else with 20-40% more than 6k. Becoz it is easier to hire new staff with right salary, than to justify why they need to "specially" increment the one existing staff by 20-40%. Becoz otherwise break PSD guidelines.

Of course, unless the staff is from key positions in cornerstone projects (i.e. projects that cannot afford to be extended), in which case they probably would have been well-fed in the first place

You got a point too, but personally I prefer a good working environment for now.

5.5k for a fresh grad with ZERO experience is OVERPAID, to be honest.

Yup, I got more than 6 years relevant experience from private, compare with my junior/fresh grad just merely 500 dollars different. sad case when learn the difference.
