I don't get it. Some foreign banks in SG have 10% increments... wtf? Our tech salaries are the highest compared to other industries yet we get like 2-7% annual increments.

No wonder people job hop after 1-2 years lol, staying at the same company for more than 2 years is career suicide unless you work for Google, Facebook, Amazon, etc.
salaries are only high coz tech recruiters here suddenly realized the need to attract talents. but they boost the juniors pay in a knee-jerk reaction and now everyone above is unhappy );

boost fresh grad is easiest coz need least amount of justification to PSD, yet can earn a good mention in ST fresh grad reports tt's published yearly, as well as other careers publications. huat ah.

last time, DSTA and DSO also like that, that time mad scramble for talents, so just raise $5000 (in 2015/2016!) for fresh grads! In the end also pissed off mid/mid-seniors. GovTech is on such decline path as well.

ultimately its still how massively outdated PSD policies are

ya, some ex-colleague at associate level jump to private already senior.
most of the engineers stagnant at H level.

Junior: Typically 0-2 years of experience. Mostly fresh graduates or engineers in their first job.

Mid: Typically 2-5+ years of experience. Able to mentor juniors and lead small scale projects end-to-end.

Senior: Typically 5+ years of experience. Expected to own complex technical initiatives and having more responsibility in designing rather than implementing.

Lowballed hard by HR. Let me guess? You revealed your salary and you got pegged to the grade matching your salary?

Imagine your salary lower than your junior, but more workloads, responsible than junior, and yet junior get promoted faster than you because "it is easy to promote junior (not because they perform good, simply they works here for 1yr already)", wtf

lol, a long time ago, when I once applied for GovTech back in 2016, my company salary was inexplicably low. at that time, fresh grad salary was 4Kish. I was much lesser than that.

Everything went well, until after I'd to disclose my salary. Then no news. Then HR rejeck. But team ask me want to go under their agile consulting firm headcount ma?

Seemed to me back then, my salary was such a joke until even after HR apply 'max-PSD-allowed' 15% increase, also cannot hit fresh grad salary, easier to just give up candidate esp if team not insistent in bringing me in.
