Thats almost a 1.4k increment in 4 years if you had started ur career at a ministry. Equivalent to an annual increment of 350.

It probably is equivalent to a B grader.

Of course in pvt you can go on to earn way more.

Within each pay grade, your annual pay increment (MI) is more or less fixed with a small percentage band (go check it out if you don't believe). When you get a promotion, the increment is roughly double that (for lower pay grade). Without significant pay revision or Benchmarking, it is near impossible to have such big jumps in pay. And the thing is, most benchmarking to industry exercise has already been done recently. And going forward, given the dim outlook, not likely to have any more for the next few years at least.
It's a CSB...

it is even rare for scholars not to say a merit degree only. a close to 1k increment in ministry every year?

people really working in stat board will know. unless you left the service and then come back with new skills, usually the increment would not be more than 10% per annual (even for A performer).

uniformed groups like SPF pay more due to IPPT, live firing shooting and shift duty.

not very sure about the salaries, but i think u can command at least low to mid 4k/mth in the civil service...
Bro, not true. Alot of jobs have hidden allowances that can be quite substantial to the gross salary. But it is true that readers should factor in work hours when you decide if a job pays well. your $/hr would give you a better understanding of the value of your work to the hiring organization.

Well...it is not a story. It is a personal sharing of my salary changes (i.e. Constituting from Merit Increment, Promotion Increment, Annual Salary Review) over the last three years. I agree the ministries uses a 10% increment per annum as a guide to salary increment but it is not limited to this % when other salary reviews, promotion increment are factored in.

Anyway, if my earlier sharing gets discredited, then I must say I have provided truthful information, of which people can choose to believe it or not.

Also, it is a testament that your starting class of degree, whether you're a government scholar or not, does not really matter. If you truly deserve the salary scaling for the hard work you put in, your superiors will reward you for what they see and recognized.

Ever since, I've moved on to private sector recently after learning that my contract wasn't going to be renewed due to government-wide ministries/stat boards on a headcount freeze.

Pretty bummed out because I was hoping for a conversion to permanent staff but nonetheless I made a good impression with my immediate supervisors and got a stellar letter of commendation. As of now, I got a pay bump to 4.2k after moving into a FMCG company. Btw I'm in the finance field.

The stat board I was in was fantastic, work-life balance was brilliant. Compared to where I am now, it's a huge change but I can cope because the 2 years working before I got my BSc was in a MNC too.
I seem to be exactly in your position. Somehow it's pretty difficult to find a job how given the current economy.

In any case, thank you very much for your response!

4 years only manage $1.4k ?

Feel sad for you, in private sector..you can easily get over $500-$800 increment every year.

It's true that private sectors generally give better increments but the $500-$800 increment is not homogeneous. Also, the salary regulations are different. If you're in it for money, dont come to the public sector.

Any well read readers out there would know the pros and cons of working in private vs public sector. Salary increment is but one of them.

Do factor in $/work-hours too, public sector may be paying better...

Don't think there will be many firms this year giving more than $500 pay increment for rank and file staff this year. If they give you, have to beware maybe you are in the retrenchment bracket.
