hi friends, not sure if this is the right forum but i need your help!!

i'm quite new to the forums here but i wanted to find out if MAS or EDB is a better place to work in as a fresh grad. i have offers from both and they're very good roles with decent starting pay. the job nature is different, but both can lead to great career progression and exit opportunities. it's tough for me to pick. how should i decide?

You have to decide urself. And 10 years down the road you look back, you only have yourself to blame for choosing the right when you should have went left.

I am at the equivalent of your grade in a stat board. I am a farmer and one year older than you are. Can't foresee when i will hit superscale, though my CEP is 8.

Been at MX10 for past two years. Would like to crowdsource from those who hit MX9. how long did you take to get to MX9? Request to also state your age, gender and whether you are PSLP/farmer. =) Thanks in advance to all those willing to share such confi info.

Hi, local undergrad here going to graduate in a few months. Weighing my options now and a lot of people I talked to seemed to have a bad impression of working in the civil service. Are they just bitter that they didn't have good honours from a local uni to qualify, or is the civil service really that bad?

Be glad you have options in this economic climate.

It all depends if you value stability or risk taking.

For myself, I value stability and work-life balance in my job/career hence I chose civil service. I prefer taking risks outside of my job, through my investments, side hustles (shhh)

People who have a bad impression of cs would say that generally its pay ceiling is lower than private sector. This is true, but also take note of the percentage of people in private sector who make it that big. Also it is harder to jump from civil service to private than the other way.

Male, early 30s farmer MX. What should be the pay for my age? I'm paid under 5k.

From reading this forum and from hearing from my friends seems like my age group avg should be earning in the low 10k salary range. Is this assessment correct? And any suggestions on how to breakthrough?
