Male, 27 yrs old, Diploma Holder
SGD$1900 per month with additional $100-$400 incentive per month if target met.

I can assume there's no other person who has lower salary than me who is the same age and acquired the same education level as me.

What's worst? I dream of a particular European sports car every night. I truly believe i can truly own one someday but reality is a bitch.

I'm a pathetic loser.

I pray and hope my "luck" will change for the better.
Pray no use one... Trust me... Better to take immediate action to upgrade yourself academically NOW!!... And at the same time, seek out better job opportunities.. Build your contacts.. Always remember to not get complacent in a job... Stay focus on moving onto the next better opportunity... Focus on making your european sports car a reality come true..

I am a poly diploma holder too and didn't go any further from there.
At your age, I worked for a crane company with basic of around $2700.
With travelling allowance and overtime, I could gross $8K a month, more if I go offshore.
But it's a lot of hard work cos it means being away from home half of the time in a month and not having the luxury of working in an airconditioned office. Not that I'm complaining, it's the kind of work that I enjoy to be outdoor.

Just trying to put forward to you, it's all up to you what you want to do in life that will decide your earning. If you stay put and don't venture out, you will get stuck.

Agree. Reality is, if you want to be paid well, you have to (i) choose an industry that pays well and (ii) constantly be on the lookout for a better opportunity.

I have poly friends who are making more than 10k per month 8 years out of ns because they were constantly looking out for opportunity - very alert and very agile. I also have a level scholar army mates which are still working with the govt drawing barely $5k.

8yrs after NS and making 10K per month, that's like @ 28-31 years old making 10K per month. Seriously?

What kind of work are they doing?

I can only think of businessman, property agent, insurance agent and etc ,just to name a few, who can make such money per month at that age with diploma level only.

I have been working in the financial industry for the past 15 years with the same company.
I will be 46 soon.

My annual package have increased gradually over the years but I feel my package is below industry average. With an MBA and doing a front office job, I thought an annual package of S$140K is too low.

I heard new young graduates are getting close to my package!

I feel like moving to other companies but am comfortable with my current environment and great colleages. I also feel uncomfotable talking to my boss or HR about my pay.

What should I do? Any HR experts care to share?

Thanks

We are all so sad.

Some feel underpaid after reading all these crazy high pay posts.

Others are well paid but continue to have the need to compare.

I just hope you guys have happy lives.

Remember to do things for others and be kind.

YR 1: 2.3k/month. Bonus = 0.
YR 2: new company. 3k/month. Current YR 2.

Degree.

Is this lousy? I have degree, and jump of 700 was good, but now YR 2 only 3K/month. Feels very pathetic, after CPF and giving parents money, expenses...etc. Of course if every year jump 700 will be damn good la, but if stay for 3 years, I hear average company raise is 5%? My first company give 5% but I thought real low so I jumped. At 5% with 3K, only 3.5K after 4 years of work.

My friends advise me stay in pvt. sector cos in long run, will earn MUCH more than govt. But my govt. working friends all making 3+K first year, like DSTA engineers 3.5+. I think their increase also can't be less than 5% what. And one of my teacher friends was complaining, teacher pay increment about 150 a year only. At 3K, that's exactly 5% what. Somemore, I see police/prison that kind, with degree starting already 3 to 3.5K. Even saw some anti-criminal group call CPIM paying 3.8K, yet I never heard of this group of people before. Seems like just investigate govt corruption only, can't be as hard as people investigating commercial crimes what, and I get the feeling it's really zuo bo lan play computer game only. Last time I always tot policeman = poor. Actually where got? Probably 5K in 5 years, which is not too shabby what. Not to look down on them (I actually think it will be fun being police), but their job also quite slack what, pay good and stable. Those are degree people of cos, diploma maybe different. But heard someone diploma about 5+ years with Prison department, earning 5K (and i think it's not fake de).

How sia, I think 3K at YR 2 is quite demoralizing. On bus always dreaming of getting some sponsorship to study Masters then lucky strike into bank/consulting and command 5-6K with average prospects easily to 10K.
