Hi all, is it normal for someone age 30 with only freelance experience to be offered mx12 scheme instead of mx13? Pay is still in the 3000 range. What is the difference? Will it be harder to promote at mx12?

Cos they say they are unable to recognise the freelance work experience, so it's like starting as fresh grad. I don't mind actually. But was just wondering why it is mx12 instead of mx13? Does anyone have any idea?

If your offer is from the Ministry that I think it is, then I don't think that there will be any pay cut. I was hired a few months back by the same Ministry and didn't experience any pay cut after approval of appointment. Anyway based on your offer, I don't think you are being shortchanged because that's the amount that most people are getting.

Does having a master degree get you a higher salary in civil service? Does it help with career progression?

Some places start off fresh grads (or those "deemed" fresh grads) at MX13 and some at MX12.

I started at MX13 as is the norm in my place. Pay I heard is the same as those who started in places that start with MX12.

Difference seems like those who start as MX12 may promote to MX11 in as early as 2 years. While those who start at MX13 have to use 1 year to "promote" to MX12, before waiting another 2 years with good performance to reach MX11.

Starting as MX12 sounds like a good thing then.

I'm of course not the official source and speak only from my limited experience and hearsay, so what I say my not be the gospel truth.

he is not asking if can match, he is asking if he joins EDB, whether he can ask for 10-15% increment from last drawn

Not at all. A masters is virtually useless in Singapore unless:

1. You intend to go into academia
2. It's relevant to your field (e.g. to practice psychology, you need masters)

Sign on for 6 years, got a part time private degree.

3 years in private company. Took a pay cut and came in to CS at 31 with (MX12) 4.2k++.
Seems like my regular years was not counted eventho there are lots of similarity on what I do right now.

Currently after 1 year is 4.5k. Looking at 4.7k after confirmation in another few months and 4.8k after prorate increment to align to CS next year march. I am just a farmer.

My site abit unique due to it being very small.
1) Increment seems to be a whole number instead of by percentage.
2) Performance bonus so far my 1 year quantum is 1.3 month which is damn low taking into consideration mid year and year end have nothing for last year.
3) Was told promotion take about 8years or more.
4) Was told by direct boss and colleagues who have been around for 4-10 years, that everyone will get grading C no matter how well or bad you do unless it is time for promotion.
5) Was told they do not do cross posting. So if I want to do other post, I have to look at other ministries.

Are these across most CS or just my site? If it's just my site I think it's time I look elsewhere.

HR just told me I am recommended for confirmation and emplacement and thus am considering.
