probably true only if they applied for the same job & role. and also keeping all other factors constant (e.g. same bachelor's class).

it was for the same role. DSTA. we discussed our salaries quite openly because we're pretty close.

Under the same RO in the same department?

it will only be true if it comes from HR.
otherwise can be due to many other reasons such as interview performance, salary negotiation and even the HR person who is helping with the package

For fresh grad, sometimes it depend if you are the first or second choice. For experienced applicant, it will depend on how well the HR relate your relevant experience with the role you are applying.

Looking to transition from private sector to civil service - getting quite tired of the corporate lifestyle.

Male in early 30s currently working in investment banking at one of the BB banks. Previous experience at a MNC. First class honours from a local uni, and also an MBA from a top US program before going into banking.

Keen to leverage my private sector experience and move into a finance (MAS?) or economic development (EDB, MTI?) related role in public sector. Have a couple of questions on that:

- Am expecting to take a pay cut for sure. But what level can I expect to enter realistically and what would the numbers look like?
- Would I be regarded as a second class citizen in public sector and progress slower than the scholars?

Thanks all!

Anyone managed to negotiate their pay increment in Min or SB? Already working there for some years. Possible to initiate such negotiations? Or will get blacklisted? Thx.

Don't quite understand what you mean by negotiation. Are you referring yourself working in a min or sb and want to negotiate your current pay? If so, who do you plan to approach?

I always hear of people negotiating for higher pay in private companies and I don't understand why nobody does that in the public service. After all, at least during LKY's time, the public service strive to remunerate competitively. If you bring value to justify it, why should it not be allowed? As for who to approach, I'm not sure. The director or HR maybe? Hoping someone who has tried can share.

From what I know, DSTA considers Masters to be equal to 1 year of work experience which is why your friend is getting more.
