125K bonus?! Is it normal to get to ED in late 30s?

Any allowance in the 15k base?

There are a few, but age is never a factor for promotion. As of last year, OCBC doesnít avail allowance, itís converted to base pay.

Not sure that any local or foreign banks can pay such bonus.

I doubt foreign banks could pay such bonus. Are you in front office or emerging tech (GenAI, cyber) function in OCBC?

Many staff experienced a 25-35% increase in pay during this period. U can ask around dbs and UOB friends whether they gotten pay adjustment. I am not lying. My monthly salary has increased by 40%. My friends who worked in foreign banks are still getting to standard 3% increment and risk of layoff with low bonus. Where else the local bank staff are getting higher and higher bonuses due to record high profits.
i can affirm this as well. switch to local bank in 2021 after almost 15 years in foreign bank. since then gotten 12% increment on my first year then 10% on my 2nd year and 4 months plus bonus for both year. And i wasnít promoted.

This is true.

DBS has been doing lots of pay restructuring since 2022. In fact they have a popular tech program called DBS SEED in which they give SEEDers 5.5k starting, reaching up to 6.8k after 2 years completion, bonus is over 3 months.

There's also almost no layoff unless you do stupid nonsense like insult SG flag or say PAP sucks etc. If you work like a normal civilized human being, you'll never get laid off.
