no disrespect but i doubt you will get a definitive answer here. Why don't you email your HR?

Am I right to say that, given the same grade, the higher your MX (i.e. the more senior you are), the lower would be the increment in percentage terms?

it's been said many times that MIs are not given out in % terms, but rather, based on relatively fixed absolute quantums

for e.g., if 2 MX12 officers, one on $4k and the other on $4.5k, both get a 'B' rating, we can expect both of them to receive very similar MIs (say ~$300). Therefore, the $4.5k chap will receive a smaller increment in % terms.

hi, anyone knows how the promotional increment is calculated? apparently, my promotional increment is lower than my annual increment. is the promotional increment tag to CEP or is it a fixed quantum sum or dependant on the yrs of svc?

Have seen people in their early 30s still joining as MX12. I think if you can accept the more junior pay and position, age should not be an issue in most cases.

Not accurate. MI for MX10 onwards is in %.

PI is fixed based on which grade you promo to. (i.e. MX 12 to 11 PI is universal) However do take note that there is a 'hard cap' on the % of PI + MI that can be granted so there is still some variance there.

Reason i asking is because, i noe of 2 mx 12 officers both getting ard the same pay,both gt B,but one guy gt extra 200 in increment.....i was wondering if its because of CEP? Because the guy who gt more increment was a 2nd upper, vs the other guy a 3rd class.....

Very hard to tell - just by 1 year of MI. Long and short, you should try to observe the boss likes who more.

For most MX officers who rank from MX13 - MX9 during 35-40 year career, you can calculate how long would a promotion normally take. So, a promotion year is like a windfall year that only happens nearly once in a decade for most.

This is really making me think that civil servants are really out of touch with reality, and are a money-grubbing, self-serving bunch!

got to agree with the original poster. the govt's usual stance is that CS salary must be pegged to pte sector to remain competitive, but i really wonder who they are pegging to.

i have worked in a Fortune 500 MNC with crappy 1-3% increments with an average B/C rating. have also worked in a GLC at about 3-7% for a B/C. only in banking will you get something like 10-15% for a B rating.

if you think about it it really is in the interest of the paper pushing, policy making scholars to come up with inflated salaries and increments while all the while insisting that this is what people in the market it earning.

bullocks.
