Default For local U grads, how well are civil servants paid compared with the private sector

In terms of salary, roughly what percentile would civil servants be at for local uni grads (NUS/NTU/SMU)? Is 70th percentile a good estimate?

Nowadays we have many fresh grads here in this forum. I will suggest that you submit an application, get an offer first and provide a figure for us to advise. If not there is really no point asking such generic qn which leads to nowhere.

Generally the salary range is 3 - 5k, depends on what role you go for

This is very general, but civil servants are at around the 65-70th percentile among local uni grads. If you take into account the entire workforce (incl. non-uni grads), civil servants are at around the 85-90th percentile. Above civil servants are doctors, lawyers, bankers, management consultants and some MNCs.

This question is so vague, you should read more of this forum to get a sensing. But here are some figures, coming from a business grad:

Public service range: 3k - 5k (see below)
Ministry: 3.5 - 4.5k
SB: 3k - 5k

Private sector range: 2.5k - 13k (see below)
Mid-tier (non big 4) audit firms 2.5-2.7k
Direct hires in banks 3.3-3.5k
Management Associate Programmes 3.8 - 5.5k
Consulting 6-7k
Investment Banking 9-12k

The above figures are for fresh grads from local uni, based on published figures and also general sensing from friends and career office.
