I am the 7.7K person - and I work around 60h a week. Mostly paper writing, clearing papers, meetings, presentations, convincing many stakeholders and management, as well as large scale project management ... I started off at 2.6K. Salary tripled in ten years. Not easy to join as we take only those with good honours, pay is relatively good but do we work for it and expectations are high

7k monthly, but small title & low responsibilities & mild stressful, only 30 hrs/wk. how is this?

60h a week is perfectly fine, hardly considered as OT especially since you are paid 120k+ pa. How about those working 60 hours in the pvt sector and getting paid 80-100k only?

Joining the CS is not for everyone.

Got to have a very high tolerance for red tape, write, re-write and re-re-rewrite papers and ideas, buying in many stakeholders and many layers of management, exhibit Yes Sir and respectful behaviour while not being seen as lacking in imagination and individual thinking. Manage spanners-throwing and be extremely patient to see the project or policy thru to implementation - often takes years. And have angelic behaviour in all aspects of personal life - don't let go on Facebook and Twitter.

We have the same profile... I am 34m and have been working for 10 years too. I started at 2.8k but am only at around 110k per year now. I have been working in GLCs all this time, barring about 3 years when I was with a Fortune 100 MNC.

You don't need any more "industry benchmarking" salary adjustments as you are more than well remunerated and will struggle to find a job in the pte sector that at least matches your salary.

Good luck.

I agree wholeheartedly with the statement below.

That being said, there are also the positive aspects of being in the CS. The career is as stable as it can be. And as long as one does not commit a serious wrong and offend the bosses, u can continue progressing with the masses, till the glass ceiling is hit. Not bad, I would say.

Hello everyone ! Could some kind souls kindly advice me on the following? Do not wanna alert the HR yet.

If I were to leave my current Ministry in Oct 15, would I in general be entitled to pro-rated 13th month AWS and PB?

There is usually a end-year bonus of about 0.8 months in concern, would I receive it at the new Ministry/Statboard?

You can only get it if it's a transfer of service. You won't be able to get it if you resign.
