I think it as a meaningful job which contributes back to society. a bit cliche but that is the reason for me submitting my application online

also, mind to share your last drawn pay with your working experience in poly?
thanks!
i agree that teaching profession is a meaningful job but I like to have control over what I do. I heard teaching in MOE is very stressful - KPI is linked to student performance and if one gets a bad class, then consider your life is ruined. Those who are teaching in schools under MOE, can you share your experiences?

Salary has just reached 41xx .

may I ask your current job and your experience.

i've been working in civil service for a few years, and considering a career switch as i feel that though the $$ is sufficient, there seems to be no aim or satisfaction in my work. i guess i'm just asking myself what to do with my life, haha.

anyway, thanks for sharing as well

Now, i can't go back to industry. What is best option for me? What else can i do to earn better? After being a lecturer, what else does one do?? Join ministry? which ones - please suggest some?
all your industrial skill will be gone if you stay in the poly...only talk can talk but no practical no how

you are talking about UNIVERSITY is it? Poly staff are actively engaged with the industries through project collaborations. Don't know anything, dont anyhow shoot. Talk also must talk sense.

PAX Salary Range (effective 1 Sep 2012)

PAX 2
$10,920 - 14,910 /16,900

PAX 3
$ 7,060 - 9,670 /10,980

PAX 4A/4E
$ 5,120 - 7,690 / 8,980

PAX 5A/5E
$ 3,750 - 5,740 / 6,740

PAX 6A/6E
$ 2,410 - 4,270 / 5,200
With this recent revision: I have not been promoted and yet I get a new salary range call PAX6AS or personal-to-holder. What is the implication?

Unless they do the Personal To Holder thing again...
I got the personal to holder thing after this revision because am at the ceiling of pax6a and now i am called PAX6AS or personal to holder. Was hoping for a promotion to 5A but didn't get it. super disappointing and annoying, which means it is stuck at PAX6 for god knows how long? What is the implication anybody knows?

1) 12 x monthly basic
2) 1 x AWS (i.e. 13 month)
3) PB (depend on individual performance. Average is 1.5 mth)
4) Variable Annual Supplement (depend on overall economy. Can be 0 - 2.x mths)
5) Growth bonus (only in exceptional year, so far only given out twice)

What are the salary components for PAX scheme like?
