If everyone's is uniform, then i know that same rank not so formal if you know them personally.
When finally in Rome you will know what the Romans do. Don't worry and just blend in. Anyway if you are a DXO you are not required to abide by many rules uniformed regulars must abide, most commonly the salute and sir.

Don't be too afraid to make mistakes, just blend in buddy. Some people are rank conscious coz they worked hard to finally reach the rank to be called Sir... Then u make them happy and salute them lor...

Nowadays u plug in also be blocked by software. Cables are everywhere, people use it to charge their devices.

Nowadays most places are green zone. If you really end up working in a red zone, you will learn from your colleagues what they do to overcome... Don't worry too early...anyway, now no more phones without camera... Not even from mustafa.

Haha thanks. I was reading that thereís an app on geolocation blocking - has it been deployed across SAF yet? I canít bear to sandblast the lenses of my iPhone. Haha.

Unless one carries another phone for work.

One man's meat is another man's poison. When I went to dttb, couldn't help listening into the gossip and complaints of the non uniform ladies n gentlemen. It feels like those who really want to maximise the system, can really just push it all the way and fully utilise the perks. However as my friend (a uniformed regular) advised me, since there are so many deadweight around, if you are keen to rise, it is not difficult to be visible. as a officer he has so many deadweight around he is grateful to have one or two good people to do good work. That is, for dx9 and dx10. It seems that dx11 onwards, it is difficult to be outstanding based on hard work alone.

However another friend, resigned navy officer also advised about the deadweight mindset of uniformed officers. They really just wear uniform and know nothing. He resigned because he kept contributing and kept rising but he reached his own knowledge ceiling after rising 3 ranks. CEP maxed just too bad. In his words, the military lives in their own bubble. But then, doesn't every large organisation live in their own bubble?

To everyone that feels negative about the work of a DXO, don't let the negative energy drag you down. The grass is not always greener on the other side, but the grass certainly grows better on the side that is well maintained.

My opinion is, get in, enjoy the perks, learn what you can, get out. If you hit your late 40s, then just cruise with the decent annual package.
