I have a friend who is on the AO scheme, but he says he gets paid less compared to our friends in banking, law, and doctors, and also has to retire by a certain age, like army officers.

Heard that they will be getting their pay cut soon, is that true?
why can't he compare to those engineers?

AO I think is under pension scheme?

i am not sure, just heard from this guy. not a very close friend so i didn't ask too much about how he got in. he is not one of those scholar though, so maybe it is possible.

anyway he said that many are leaving as the pay elsewhere in the financial sector is much better, and the work also a lot easier.

nowadays very hard to work in govt as ppl are very demanding, and politicians have to consider all sorts of unreasonable request.

in a bank just spend other people's money, and they pay you well for it.

-A fresh grad (gd honours, with NS) entering the intelligence service would likely draw a starting pay close to 4.5k, give and take 1k, if not mistaken.
-An economist (masters degree, with NS) would likely be drawing anything from 4.5k- 5k or possibly even more.

And don't even start on the elite Admin Service and their feeder MA scheme....
I'm not sure how it is but so far, it has been $3800 to $3900 for a first class honours engineering degree from NUS/NTU in jobs like DSTA and DSO.

If you really want a good starting pay and you have just a degree, $3900 is the starting pay for an engineer in the Singapore Navy. You can get even more if you get onto the C-scale.

BTW, only Singaporeans need apply for the above jobs. You can't even be a PR.

1st class = how much (with NS)
2nd upper = how much (with NS)
2nd lower = how much (with NS)

if current got 3-4 years of exp with 2nd lower(with NS), then join DSO, how much to expect?
1st Class = 3900
-$100 per drop

$4.4k is my gross monthly salary (doesnt include the bonuses).
Starting pay was $3.3k in 2007
Went up to $3.6k in 2008
Then to $3.8k in 2009
Then to $4.4k in 2010

By default, you get an annual increase in pay (called merit increment;dependent whether u perform well at work) and on top of that a promotional increment (if you get promoted to a higher job-grade)

Hope this will give you a guage of your salary.
this person should be getting at least 5.5k by april 2012!!!!

so good!! and I can even hit 3.9k this year...same batch as him except 2nd lower
