27-29: Mezzanine Financing at an international Bank. Left earning exactly 73k.

29 - 32: Investment Analyst at the current fund. Got very fortunate jump to 100k when i first joined. Promoted at 30 to Senior Assoc. Promoted at 32 to portfolio manager, which included a pay adjustment up to 160k.
Maybe just a quick footnote here: i am the beneficiary of my current portfolio manager going back to her home country, and her putting in a recommendation for me to take her role.

Started at 27 because I undertook my MFE over at CMU right after local undergrad here in SG. But don't think this has any bearing on promotion trajectory

How many of you feel that Singapore has declined significantly over the last decade? Stagnant pay not keeping up with inflation (except for politicians), rising GST tax and threat of future income taxes raises, rising hdb prices, cecas threatening to take our professional jobs, murderous crazy teens running amok in our midst, and such.

If you ask me ten years ago if I could see Singapore in such a sad state, I would have laughed in your face. Or do we just pop a xanax and see everything through rose-tinted glasses as we were taught in schools to do?

I agree to a certain extent. This is a bottomless pit. Only with more manpower then our gdp can keep going up. So more and more people competing for jobs.

In term of happiness, i am happier than the past though as I managed to grab the opportunity that comes with the recent performance by our economy (pre covid). I am now semi retired at 40. Majority of the time are spend on sending kids to school, exercise, do what i like.

I totally disagree with that. The issue is not about stagnant pay but rather the increasing mediocrity of jobseekers coupled with 1) increased competition for well paying jobs and 2) alot of grads are caught in traditional jobs which are primed for disruptions.

I have seen good people joining tech with a starting package of $100k p.a. but these are few and far between. But there are many average joe in accounting and finance or business degrees which are primed for disruption and automation.
