10% is very good in both public and private sector, if not considering job hopping.
3-4% annual increment? That's way too low. Prolly for the poor performers.

3-4% is on non promotion years. A typical promotion will likely yield around 10 - 12% and factoring in pay adjustment, 10% avg should be about right.

No it's not. 3-4% on non promotion years is about avg. The poster wasn't talking about 3-4% avg across the years.

Starting pay is based on the scheme and not the job function.

The key advantage which policy officers have is job exposure and exposure to senior management. This can help increase progression pace if you are deemed to have a higher than average CEP. Of course there are other opportunities for operational officers but I would reckon that it's fewer because of the nature and visibility of policy jobs vs operational jobs
You and the other posters are right about the starting pay being tied to the scheme. I'm not sure what the OP meant by policy work, I was referring to stuff like the economist scheme in MAS which is one of those that pays higher than the typical MX.

Hmmm, got 8-10% for several non-promotion years... Didn't know the increment is so different for the average performer.

Not MAS, is MTI. economist hired by MAS is not under the scheme. Economist under MTI rotated out to MAS (or various other ministries) will be under the scheme.

Are you on the economist scheme? Or some other professional scheme (non MX)?

Yes you're right. Don't know how I ended up typing MAS.

That's quite high. 8% is probably the ceiling for B graders on my side. Mind sharing which org you're from?

Competition in policy department is stiffer too. Because the cream of the crop tend to flock there.
