Realistically, I am nowhere near doctors, lawyers and bankers but the money i am drawing is sufficient to lead a comfortable life - staying in a well-renovated HDB flat, driving a sedan and raising a small family.
What does average engineering degree means? Just pass with merit?
Must you reach MX10 to get 11k salary?

I think you are doing very well, earning 120k at age 33 in the civil service, as a non-scholar. Assuming 5 months of bonus, your monthly pay should be around 7k. Just curious, at this rate of progression, why do you not think that you will hit 11k sooner, perhaps by 40? I reckon you can probably get MX10 in a couple of years. And MX9 a few years later?

you believe everything people write here??? 120k pa at age 33++. yeah right. note the ++. 120k is doable for degree holder, no need to stretch. bonus is about 4 months for average grader. but the age is not 33++. more likely closer to 43.

mid year 0.5 months
end year 1 + 0.8 months
pb take as 2.5 months (lower end)

total months salary = 12 + 4.8 = 16.8 months

monthly salary = 7,142

Not bad for farmer. 7k at 33 is pretty attainable if you are in the right ministry. Some places pay more than others for the same grade. How is the increment? If able to get $250/year, my friend will be at 7k by age 33.

I am the poster of the original post. If one looks at the breakdown of 120K, it is very much achievable and realistic. Nothing to shout about.

Are you 34 in 2015? Ns?

If you started in CS right after grad, then 7k is attainable at 34 for non-scholar. 7k per month works out to be 120k plus annually.

Default Acceptable?

Hi all, i'm a female fresh grad from ntu with first class honours.

MSF quoted 3.4k as starting salary. Is that standard? Can i negotiate?

Otherwise i also received an offer from a special education school but salary quoted was 3.2k. I prefer the special education job, but i'm trying to save for my Masters program, so thought that it will be better to earn more for now.

What do you all seniors think? Is a 3.4k salary acceptable?

I think there is no room for negotiation as you are a fresh grad. What they are offering you is based on your academic qualifications.
