Default Working culture @ IDA

hi, i'd like to hear feedback on the work culture @ IDA. Is it very rigid, army style environment, or is it more work-life balance. On ave, how long will it take a normal degree holder (e.g. with merit) to get to the AD level freshout from school. Thanks for any advice.

The "auntie" culture is very strong.

with 13 yrs of very relevant experience, is it silly to accept any lower ranks than AD? What is the pay scale like for AD?

AD is one rank below the default non-scholar retirement rank of DD. 13 years is barely enough for AD under normal situation, if they offer better accept fast.

Just to clarify, when I say AD and DD etc. means internal real title across most stat boards & public organizations, not external inflated titles like MTI.

I can’t remember precisely, but I know DD is around 8k – 11k and AD 6.5k – 9k. Actually not bad lar, if you go private sector most people will also hit ceiling at around that level, some might not even break the 10k mark in their whole careers. Bankers take up <1% of working population, cannot everything compare with banks, must look at normal career in MNC better benchmark.

There are some very rare case got non-scholar hit D level (start of superscale), but really very exceptional.
