Then they break the bond coz they can afford so. If you want to join the private sector in the first place, why not look for a sponsorship from the private sector? Makes no sense that you are making use of taxpayer's money and then decide to venture into private. If you have no wish to serve the public, then DUN JOIN !! No job in the world is easy, you think its easy being a banker?? my friend works in Bloomberg and earns 15K/mnth at the age of 27. The hours you put in and the constant worry about the market and all the stress, can you take it? His annual payout in 2010 is $230K including bonus, and comparing i earn 50k last year, it was like wow!! but he has high blood pressure, digestion problem and many more that i shall not elaborate due to the work. Are you ready for that? All jobs have pros and cons. It depends what do you value most. work life balance? or loads of money in the bank? both sounds good but both has pros and cons. consider these before signing your life away. if you do decide to sign, be happy about it.

Agree. I know my close friend is earning over S$200K as an executive search/HeadHunter. Mid 30s with 3rd class or no honors from NUS/NTU. His health is his main worry now.

Thus, there are trade-offs.

Below that, there is DCE, Dir, DD, AD and the other appointments like Program Managers, Head Capability Development etc. I do not know if there's a 1 to 1 mapping for the grade numbers to the appointment, maybe some appointment spans more than 1 grade?

Perhaps those who know SAF officer's salary ranges can provide a clearer picture. Old birds would recall a COL Simon Hoon from the navy who took on the Dir HR after he hung up his uniform. And also the previous DCE(SD) BG Sin Boon Wah who was our defense attaché to Washington before joining DSTA. So the DIR's pay would be ~COL's pay while the DCE's pay is ~BG pay. Perhaps slightly less because they no longer have the uniformed services allowances, vocation pay and what not.
dsta grade 8, what is the salary range ?

just know with experience in MNC , you will be headhunted by DSTA anyway, and you probably leap over them in no time. Probably you be better off seeking sponsorship outside

I don't know the answer. But based on my research and observation.

Grade 8 = senior engineer. Should be $70-90K p.a
Grade 9 = project manager. Should be $90-120k p.a

Again, it's based on my intelligent guessing since no one's willing to share.

Maybe 10% lower. My guess.

Say I decide to work in a bank after that 6 years, will i be able to utilize my skills and exp. in EMA analyzing energy trends etc to full use? And what will the remuneration be like in the pte sector after 6 years? Will my scholarship experience be of use? Im sorry if i offend anyone out there with my questions, but these are pragmatic concerns that have to be voiced out, if I were to consider my choices really carefully. After all its a 6 year bond.
Any advice regarding this issue ?
