actually yes. civil service would likely make you the 60 percentile if you are a average performer

Not true but not fantastic though. I am assuming you are earning about 75 to 80k p.a. you are doing jus average for your age. comparing across both private and public sector.

dont be mislead by people.

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.
