Default Extended Mgmt Exec Scheme

Hi all,

I have a Grade 14. Does this mean I'm at MX14? This is starting position for local diploma grads right?

It's my first time in SB and wondering what is the typical annual salary increment like.

My MX grade should go up every few years right, provided I don't screw up

wrt to the latest end-year bonus announcement, I should be eligible for the 1 mth instead of the $500 lump sum right?

Appreciate your help! Thanks in advance!

i've been lurking here for a few years now. finally left civil service middle of this year, so i can share some thoughts.

context: scholar, worked 5.5 years after grad, overseas uni w masters

2017 - MX13, 4.0k
2018 - MX12, 4.6k (roughly)
2019 - MX11, 5.4k (roughly)
2020 - MX11A, 6.1k
2021 - MX11A, 6.4k

This doesn't include 13th month or the midyear/endyear bonuses, or the performance bonus. Including these, i think my average annual started around 70 and ended up around 105.

One fact which is not well known is that there is an additional payment for talent schemes like PSLP. Scholars get put on the scheme almost automatically, but non-scholars have a chance of getting in also. Had a few colleagues who got in. The additional payment is rather significant (way more than 10% of your annual package). Admin Service also has a additional payment which is EVEN more significant (although you can only get 33% after the first year, another 33 in second year and the last 33% in the 3rd year, which is a way to retain people). The additional payment also scales up (as a proportion of income) as you rise up the ranks - for top positions, it can be half your pay or more. This is why i laugh when I see people on this forum try to figure out superscale salary and wonder why the numbers reported look so different - without the additional payment the number looks small, with the payment suddenly the numbers jump.


As for everything else...


first of all, civil service is an ENORMOUS place. statements like "good work life balance", "a lot of useless bosses", "nothing to learn", "good career progression", "a lot of retired army people", "first year always get C grade" are all true and also all untrue at the same time. it's a bit like saying "Singaporeans have dogs" or "Singaporeans like Mandopop more than english pop".

some places have amazing WLB, mostly stat board. DOS, IRAS come to mind. some places have shitty WLB. no matter where you are, scholars will have it worse because of additional saigang- er, i mean, "opportunities to shine". I was unfortunate to be in a place with bad WLB, plus COVID, plus scholar. There was a period of ~6 months in 2020 where I was working worse than the feared "996" hours of chinese tech companies (9am-9pm, 6 days a week). Seriously. Circuit Breaker and the restrictions afterwards barely affected me because i had no time to step out of the house or meet people anyway.

Specialist possible. Generalist - very very rare. Generalist leaders tend to be PSLP/AS schemes, which are very very hard to join mid-service (i only know 1 person in the entire civil service below the age of 40 who is a mid-career AS scheme).

Yes. Or if you think you can make it into the talent schemes.

This really depends on the ministry. MX13 (entry level for uni grad) can be Executive, Manager or even Assistant Director.
