Probably shows you don't need a CS degree to be a SWE. The polsci student can gain some experience and jump ship after a few years. He made the right choice!

DSTA and LTA, not the best for SWE.. but if you need to choose, then LTA.

HDB, IRAS, CPF or STB are a few good place to beside Govtech for Software engineering role.

Which roles did you get! Would say both are equally good and it depends on the role,whether it's aligned with your aspirations.

It's to attract the bright ones into the service. Progression is so-so but ultimately, the *average* degree holder in the civil service earns more than the average degree holder in the private sector.

Yep this is the main reason basically. Same as why uniformed organisations pay even more than just standard civil service at the fresh grad levels. Once you are accustomed to the high pay, you wont ever get out
