You should, pretty standard Diploma fresh grad package. I doubt you will get a significantly better pay elsewhere.

Garbage pay and some more 2 year contract. Now can easily get >2k permanent job in the market, anything less than 2.2k I won't bother.

With NS it should be slightly higher than $1.8k, try to renegotiate.

I am sharing you the policy on Salary advance which has been drafted by me. Read through the same carefully, Please do some required corrections/changes based your company policy and need, then implement the same if your management is okay with it.

I will vote for NO.

The 2 years contract is ridiculous. They want to bond you because they will be hiring you on the cheap and you will be stuck if you don't like your position for many possible reasons (r/s with boss, colleagues, environment, work itself, OT, commuting etc etc).

Don't force yourself into a corner for no good reason.

Yes, just take the job first while constantly looking around. If you find a better one then leave after that.

Of course make your there is no penalties for breaking the 2 year contract. Check notice period etc.

Zero advancement, zero benefits, shorter notice and that pittance of a salary for 2 years?
The choice is clear.

For a diploma holder, I think that's a pretty standard package. You're nothing special and your "hands-on" education is only to good to scam fresh out of sec school kids, not actual companies.
