I will tag the employment environment to your answers below:

To be the one laying down the rules, you would have to be in HQ or management position. But by and large, the civil service are the ones coming up with policies and guidelines.
Thank you for your reply!

Seems like ptd sector is better.

I will be specializing in power concentration in NTU EEE.
Do you have any ptd company to recommend?

Please don't spread rubbish rumours. PSC scholars do not start out at Asst Dir. They start at the entry-level grade for their scheme of Service. So if you are a PSC scholar on an MX scheme, you start out at MX13. And no, you do not get 12k.

Really? I thought it would be at least $3.5k for 1st class honours.
May I ask if:
i) Is your brother from local Uni i.e. Nus / Ntu / Smu;
ii) Do you have friends working in other ministries / statboards as statisticians?

Reason for asking the above is I wanted to venture into statistics in the public sector but I'm an accountancy graduate. It's either I study stats as a postgraduate degree or go on to do stats- related work.

If anyone is a statistician in the public sector, please kindly lend me your advice.

Thank you in advance =)

I suspect your bro may not be on EMA payroll. Most likely on contractor payroll but working for EMA. Something like ST employees working for DSTA/Mindef

Default 1st Class = Higher CEP?

There're alot of false rumors spreading that 1st class hon = high CEP.

FACT: they just have higher starting pay worth of ~2 yr of increment and that's all. Once they are placed on a scheme of service, no one would be looking at their paper qualifications. They have to prove themselves just like anyone else. In gist, how far one can go depends on his/her performance and potential vouched by his/her boss.

Yea... like I said, some oddities that ppl will probably find suspicious. Each of us will get our breaks at some point in time. It's a matter of timing.

After a while in 2006 when the economy was booming (before the crash in 07-08), govt recruitment was bad, naturally it had to do some adjustment, especially for junior officers.

I'm there are civil servants in this forum who would recall these events. Do share your experiences too!
Not sure if you had bad memory or simply lying thru the teeth. The economy crash was on 08-09 period. The salary adjustment for civil service was in Mar 08 - not 2007. Latest Salary adjustment was on 2012. For 2013, the only announced adjustment is for Div 3-4 officers.

Actually it depends on the ministry. Certain ministries have entry jobs at assistant directors, like MTI. So he's not entirely wrong.
