Read "Financial industry".

Since it's public info, can you share his name please? Or even better, point us to the divorce law report. Thanks.

the fact that you are asking for opinions on whether to join the mnc or spf with pay as a huge contributing factor to your choice of career proves to me that you are unsuitable to join spf.

people do not join spf to get rich. if you want to earn big bucks, spf is not the way to go. spf pay will allow you to have an above avg lifestyle, not a luxurious one.

to naysayers who feel that spf/saf personnel has no intrinsic value in th private sector, pls think again. they do formulate policies and look at global economic and financial climate vis a vis manpower/operational/security policies. not all police officers or soldiers are dumb and are unable to survive in th real world.

My advice is to take the SPF job. I have tasted both public and private sector life. So what if the high posts are reserved for the scholars. For an average graduate, civil service offers a much better pay, work-life balance as compared to the average graduate slogging out in the dog-eat dog world of the private sector.

Trust me, you need more than ability and luck to earn big bucks in the private sector. Unless you think you are of exceptional calibre, it is better to stick to public sector.

Big bucks can be earned elsewhere outside of work eg through prudent investments, trading etc. Do not let work (especially so in private sector) suck up all your energy for other such money pursuits.

not all government agencies offer excellent work-life balance. i know of at least 2 that work their staff hard, where knocking off at 8pm is considered early.

even PM Lee once lamented he got an email announcement from a civil servant at midnight. the irony is that the announcement was something on maintaining work-life balance. he said this in one of his national day rally speeches.
