Fmcg and hospitality are night and day…

P and g is arguably more competitive and prestigious than some banks

This is a good point on being a big fish in a smaller pond vs smaller fish in a huge pond. We always think we are the best or have the most potential when younger.

The top performers (top tier in best mncs, self made bosses) will always make most, but most of us will pan out average

Exactly, that post was asking if have direct reports, and the reply was yes, no matter the industry.

Agree, then it reaches a stage of how much a person wants to achieve to be "comfortable". Setting my own expectations, I aim for a minimum of $20k/mth by 40-50 (or more than $260k/yr) and I am contented. Not going crazy with some of the cannon fairies of making $400k by 30 and whatnot. Those are like top 1-5% of the working population in all age groups already. If you can achieve that, well, congrats! You can comfortably go for the 5Bs (Bungalow, Bentley, Business class travel, Boss, Breasts? Iykwim)

Agree with these points as someone from MNC.

It is a balance between stable work life and salary. Just that it is normal for fresh grads to look for higher starting pay in popular industries. In comparison MNC jobs may be seen as inferior from a starting pay point of view.

You miss the point on starting salary and life balance.

those who think mnc get good life, not true. Sometimes they just give you a task and then leave. no training whatsoever. quite tough especially if you are a fresh grad where you have never seen or do the things they are doing.

Too many GLC people in this forum.
They don't understand the competitive terrain of MNCs. You can tell from the number of creative description and incentives of MNCs.
