Yes lawyer sir but you are conveniently excluding a year of traineeship / bar etc and also the process of lateralling from local law firms where theres some discount on years of experience. Rarely do US law firms take fresh grads directly (except Latham taking 1-2 oxbridge law grads?). In UK you also take 2 years after graduating to qualify for US biglaw starting.

Assume 2 yrs to muck around + 4 yrs xp at Latham = 300k USD thereabouts = 400k SGD.

I am sure there are other roles that pay well as well (PE, HF etc) but are smaller, and IB/MC are the more well-known and sizeable ones and form the base of ‘liquidity’ for people to go into other careers.

For girls,
At 6-7 years in MBB you would be an EM level. That’s around 16-18k base, 250-300k all in.
At 6-7 years in BB IB you would be Assoc/entry VP level. That’s around 20-30k base, 400-600k all in.
US whiteshoe big law assoc = 20-30k base, 300-400k all in.
For guys, maybe take a 20-30% discount on those numbers due to 2 years lag.

Outside these professional services folks there are also the tech folks.

Tech numbers will depend on whether you are in SG or US, and when you got your stocks. The industry is growing too fast and compensation is too unstable for me to put a gauge on things. But SWEs from NUS love to talk up their US comp after going overseas, but that’s stupid. US salaries don’t apply because they pay 40% tax + high COL, and the litmus test is if you do a lateral transfer within a Google or Meta you won’t get anywhere close to your US package in SG with the same numbers (even replacing USD with SGD). But it’s also a good industry and I think SWEs with 5-6 yrs xp can be pulling 250-350k depending on which firm they are in.

Unregistered Why are people so salty in this forum? 200k++ all in is possible for top roles straight from undergraduate. Instead of being so salty maybe you should reflect why you didn't work hard in school, too busy partying left and right, or your rag and flag or whatever
