Guess it depends whether the job application form requires you to fill up your NS information?

If not, I don't think it matters.

Don't bother with CS. People are trying to get out to go to the private sector.

The salary is not great too. With your top US MBA, you should be able to draw USD 250k easily.

No point joining CS with top MBA unless you are scholar. Otherwise it's a waste of your MBA.

Inventment banking jump to CS.. prepare for a very heavy paycut. CS is not as well paid as private la..

CS is known for stability, not to make big bucks

tread with caution

Serving FSO here. Don't want to scare anyone but our lifestyle is pretty much 8.30-12am (or 1-2am for the more intense Directorates) 6-7 days a week.

Have also received other offers paying significantly better in the high 4k range at other ministries, but i think i might excel better in the former position. Is it worth it to sacrifice a 1k difference in starting pay for better career advancement prospects?

If you want a life - go for the former. If you don't mind slogging your guts out, and have a thick skin AND don't mind being pretty much abused (being shouted at on the phone at 10-11pm when you've been working since 8am, being royally screwed for not responding to an email in the middle of the night by 7am, pick the latter). It's not a bed of roses.

4.9 for 2nd upper I think. Pre covid. Dso/data pays pretty decent.

Hi I saw MFA being name-dropped here and there. Anyone can share how much they pay, salary/career progression, allowances (esp since they get posted overseas), bonuses, etc...

Thanks in advance
