Sad.
That means her boss wants her to continue to take the bus.

It depend on what industry are you in.

-Can you tell us which industry are you in? (oil n gas, aviation, marine, banking, finance, investment, or others, provide more info)
-Civil service or Private sector?

I think that is quite decent, definitely above average. Was making slightly more than that at your age. But now you need to start planning to get into upper management in the next 4 to 5 years to at least double your pay.

Default NUS lecturer

Start at 72k for PhD. After about 7 or 8 years still only 100k.

Can't ask about more senior pay since with such low pay, everyone good leaves after a few years!

Dear NUS lecturer, then you should leave too. But where do those whom you deemed as "every good" hop to?

If increments are so low, then everyone if forced to jump ship every few years? Even if you love your current company...Say you work for Google or something. Get a happy 4K/mth starting after grad. You'd be forced to jump to Apple or something to get your 5K? Then forced to jump to Microsoft to get 6K?

How do you get 80k in 6 years?
Hate how it seems that's NOT impressive. - "quite decent"...etc

That's freaking like starting at 30K and having a pay rise of 10K/annum every years. 800/mth increment.
