Hi, got offered a 2 yr contract with 3.1K salary in a SB. Fresh grad, local uni, 2nd lower, no NS. Is the salary too low?

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 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.

That 2 yr contract thing seems to be the normal these days. But my impression was that female fresh grads from local unis would get 3.3k.

Considered good pay already. I started out in the private sector with 2.9k...

Currently in a SB, i was offered 4.2k with 3 years experience, 2nd lower with NS. Everywhere is 2 years contract nowadays.

FYI: they offered me on a 2-year contract basis
Got the same offer.. Wondering if I should take up Accenture instead as they are opening me at 4450 basic pay (incl 400 transport+allowance). But I am not sure i can take the work-life balance there.

How dare you talk about work life balance when you are so young? When I started working I never saw the sun. In the office before sunrise, out of office at night. Always be in before your boss and leave the office after your boss leaves, no matter how late, even if it means past midnight. Focus on your work only, hours are important. Do not show your emotions even if there is personal or family crisis at home as this is professionalism. I enforce the same standards strictly on all staff under me.

To add on, my first boss did not allow me to take leave on my anniversaries. After time I realised that he was correct as that was professional. Some staff dare to apply for leave for frivolous things like birthdays of children or school performances even. All will be rejected.
