the 2 guys i am leading had been in the SB for more than 10 yrs. i am sure the NUS guy had a higher starting pay than me.
what im inferring is that, u joined private, managed to progress in your career, while they joined SB from the start and barely had progression so now your are their team lead?

actually the two guys are doing okay, definitely not high flyer but still a avg performer at least. they are both at mid management level now. as for me, though i am leading the team but still at mid management level only.

well, like many had said, starting pay cannot determine your career. you need alot of opportunity to progress very fast in public service.. there are plenty of jobs out there you can gain gd experience before joining the public service. thats my thought..

So HR called me and made a verbal offer. I agreed to it as it was above what I formally requested for (on the application); did not want to seem like I'm overly greedy. Did I do the right thing by not negotiating for more?

If you’re a fresh grad, then i think its based on the relatively fixed formula. Since its above ur expectation then all is good.

Do you mind sharing which sector and pay range and package, with some of your details (uni and age and experience) for reference. Please include gender so we can know if the pay range include NS bonus or not. Thanks!

Not very fresh: FCH + Masters + 1yr unrelated work experience (+ NS). It's a SB and offered below 4k. Cheers.

if ur bachelors is from local uni as well and FCH as u mentioned then confirm lowball, unless their pay package 18 mths? highly doubt so, nowadays FCH in SB about 3.8k alr

depends on your age. if your honors is from private and u complete it in 2yrs (23 yr old).. then took a masters in local U for 1 or 2 yr.. and you are offer slightly below 4k at age 25.. i think the package is reasonable

some points to consider from pointers i have collected in the thread:

(i) most of CS do not consider unrelated experience so you are possibly a 'freshie' to them. (anything less than 2-3 years in relevant scrope is unrelated)
(ii) most of CS put more weight into your bachelor degree (i.e., brand and class)
(iii) most of CS do not consider masters in your pay for relatively new starters but it may help in your career progression in long-term.

no point arguing too much because they have a formula that they go by.

having said that, you should be paid according to your bachelor FCH. mind sharing if your bachelor is local, too?
