Shagged. Iím a trainee at Baker now and drawing 2k a month. Not even enough for food and taxi (not able to claim taxi mostly because of difficult claiming system). Working till 2am daily. FML. Honestly the amount of work we are doing, should entitle us to a higher salary. CC pays its trainees 7k, why canít other firms follow?

Am I in a better position?
I am paid $1500 only but I get to go home by 6.30 everyday.
The amount of work I handle is relatively straight forward and my boss will guide me when I am unsure of anything. I get to go to attend court hearings for exposure and learning.

However I wonder if my pay is too little?

Should I move to a bigger firm for better pay say $2000?

Because CC is an English law firm that does a two-year training contract (so trainees are getting paid about $7k for two years before getting the NQ pay which is about $10k or so), whereas other firms do the Singapore law training contract which is merely six months - CC does pay more obviously but they are an outlier and only offer a handful of training contracts in Singapore each year.

So CC doesnít have to follow LPA to conduct 6 month tc and can run their own 2 year tc?

Doesnít explain why then post tc sg firms donít pay $7k or more.

I suggest you move to a bigger firm for greater challenges and $500 more.

I suggest you quit now lah. work until so unhappy also no prospects of retention.
Even you get retained and get paid $8,000, do you have the time, health, personal relationships to spend the money with quality?

We only leave once. Dont stay sad. Choose to be happy.
