certainly. its a good discission here and i agree with you that local u and scholar will still have advantage over the rest.
but i see that the gap had narrowed down and the more emphasis had shifted towards skillset/capabilities instead of the old way - academic

the purpose of my post is to encourage everyone from non local u (who are in PS or CS) to give yourself a chance, work hard and move up the ladder. if you have the mindset that no matter how well you do, you will never overtake local u, then you had already lose at the start of the race.

update: received a conditional offer. confirm they are offering 3.9k, but based their annual package on 15.5-month basis (which of course will be lower due to covid). should i continue to slog in big 4 given that bonus and increment is uncertain, or just take on this job, with lesser progression? still feel kinda lowballed cos of covid unfortunately

FYI: they offered me on a 2-year contract basis

The fact is, if you are a scholar, your MINIMUM outcome is Director. If you are a farmer, your MAXIMUM is Director.
Below Director, there is room for all sorts and backgrounds. But don't assume you'll move up the ladder at the same rate or end up at the same level.

I guess u are right. I'm a farmer from local uni. I can't expect more than a Director's post.

i bet to differ.
Agreed that non scholar max is Director but there are a lot of scholars (including president and psc scholars) stuck and retire at Deputy Director.

i am a non scholar and from non local U, sitting next door to me is a PSC scholar 5 yr older than me currently at the same grade (mx10) as me. both of us reports to the same Director. I am officially appointed the 2IC of the team earlier this year and is covering his duties when my D is away.

btw at the place i am at, Director is just 1 lvl below C lvl (GD).
i certainly wont reach group director but likewise for many other scholars i am sure.
