HAHA OMG procurement is nightmare. IM is also another nightmare. But on flip side if you are very in touch with all the policy and u join private sector that require strong knowledge of gov policy, you are pretty much a valuable asset. There is no way a private sector person can have such deep knowledge on the policies.

If you ownself beykan in public what makes you think you can so easily hop over to pte? Don't forget pte is more competitive, and your local degree counts for crap if you are incompetent, unlike in public sector.

The grass is always greener on the other side..
Well in private sector there are also many incompetent people having high position and salary. But then they have one competent skill which is the ability to take credit and play connections and undertable.
