This number is for fresh grads. Once you get through the door, they don't distinguish whether you are local uni or private. If you have prior experience, naturally u can command more.

Depends how expensive you want your condo and car to be.
At a base salary of slightly >100k per annum. Within 5-6 years, I am able to afford downpayment for a 1.5m condo + a decent continental car by myself if I want.

Of course, tanking the monthly installments is a challenge if you're doing it by yourself (about 40-50% of your take home pay will go to loan/mortgage payments), but definitely doable.
The mortgage will make you miserable every month. Once retrenched, you need to think of a way to survive.

Why so low only 2.5k? Seems way below market for a degree holder at big bank MO.

started out as contract then converted to perm and got an off cycle pay raise to peg salary to market. but even so, i was just getting 3.2k with 1 year of experience. am doing KYC and looked into the compliance thread, this seems to the norm i think? that's why was surprised that BB MO/BO pays 4 to 5k for fresh grads. even my ex-colleagues who jumped to BB was just getting that amount after 2 to 3 years of experience - probably due to their low starting pay.

Hey anyone with an idea of how's the culture and work life balance as a trainee with SocGen? Had an offer from them but still have yet to decide whether to accept. Also, what's the chances of being converted after 2 years?

BB MO/BO 4-5k fresh grad yes usually for those in the grad programme which is highly selective anyways. Can't compare with other ppl who may perhaps start MO/BO entry level in other banks and then hop around to reach BBs.

Disclaimer: only for US big 3 BBs
Absolute rubbish... There's a reason why a bulk of the ops people are looking to move into FO. There's a slim chance of a 120k maybe for 1 out of 100 ops monkeys. To the people looking to move into BB ops, please just go to glassdoor and search operations analyst salaries. Take the average and Add in 1-5% increment yearly for accurate salary trajectory.

There is a reason why FO are paid higher besides them bringing in the money…When I was in FO in a BB, there are severe compliance restrictions on trading. buy 1 stock need so many approval, by the time approval is here, the stock price already priced in all the factors.

So I choose to move away from FO, no regrets.

Rubbish. Don't know which backward company you work for but my compliance approves within the same day.

I work for one of the 3 banks listed here. Lol u only need to get compliance approval? Then MAS should close down your bank soon. And also dont forget about the 30 day holding period. U absolutely can't buy stocks like DWAC for a quick fortune and thrill when there are such restrictions lol.

For me I simply cant take away trading from my life, it helps to bring joy and destress me from work, so choosing to go away from FO is a natural choice.
