I am currently working in a Big 4 advisory for 1.5 years and am up for promotion and a 30% pay increment in July (2nd year associate to 1st year senior). The ministry postion title is the same and 10% lesser than what i will receive if i stay on and it's on a 2 year contract (when i applied they stated permanent)

Work wise is totally different and I dont mind trying something new. I do not see myself staying on in Big 4 for the long term or this particular industry i'm in, but should i wait till july or another 6 months? Which tbh i not sure if i will be enjoying and able to get another offer easily again.

Career progression, stress level , work life balance not sure if its better. Of course if the hiring process didnt take so long, i would have taken the job, but now that im closer to the promotion and increment, the benefits to take the offer now decreases.
After reading your post, the answer is very evident. You mentioned yourself that you do not see yourself staying on in the Big 4 or in this particular industry, so in the long term, you WILL leave. Why do you want to stay on just for the 30% increase and find yourself leaving soon? The worst thing is you will probably stay on, and then find excuses and reasons to delay leaving the company, such as 'oh bonus is coming in a few months, let's wait till then' . By then, your boss will give you a new job and you will find another reason to maybe stay again, even though deep down you wanna leave.

Main point is to always think LONG TERM. Where do you see yourself in the long term. This is only provided that your civil service role is a job that you are not having 2nd thoughts about and you see yourself enjoying more than big 4 (in terms of the work, not the pay).

just my 2cents, because I have experienced similar situation before.

listen to the HR. it will be the same even for bonus if you are a direct contract tagged to a perm HC.
anyway, GT is not difficult to get it.

and no such thing abour the phd, masters and such

Unregistered I think to be fair enough security is a big thing now and i believe all are still new. Security span across multiple domain such as network, endpoint protection, SIEM logs management, penetration etc. Its really a wide scope. It really tough to find someone that knows every single components and I believe it take up a team to form up while focusing on their individual expertise and cross domain once opportunities arise.

Even if there is someone that is of a seniority level, they could just be focusing on specific areas.

Right now the cyberspace is employing massively but i wonder do they know what they want, how to set up their soc etc.
