That's low. No wonder everyone wants to get into banking and finance. Snr IT Mgr in a global bank can make at least 50% more.

IDA should start pegging salaries to top 6 earners, or whatever formula the ministers are using. Otherwise it's not fair, and people will up stakes and leave to join banks. (Sounds familiar?)

1 grade below senior manager/senior consultant would be 85k +/- 5k pa. of course this is about the median and expect some higher or lower.

average performing senior should have no problem with 95-100k pa. difference between an average performer and good performer can be as much as 20% more pa due to bonus (1-2mths more). and of course good performer would have maybe 6% increment whilst average 4%.

a few years back the ceiling of senior is 8.9k pm. this window moves every year and the overlap between grades is ~20-25%. a higher ranging senior could make more than a entry level ad on a monthly basis.

the salary range in ida is quite transparent. the range is clearly indicated in the offer letter and every year's increment letter for your own grade.

Just curious, what is the salary range for AD, DD and Director?

From the hierarchy above my guess is that Fresh Grads join as Asst Manager position in IDA.

This obviously is just a pointless title. I know for a fact that even MND calls their fresh recruits Asst Director (when obviously its just an entry position).

Agree

My understanding is that in most ministries now only Dy Director or Director is considered as a manager internally.
