How many years of experience in total do you have, may I ask?

The main thing is the poly recruiting culture is they want your industrial experience. And depending on your field (the demand supply thingy), you may have some negotiating power...
Did you start at PAX4 or got promoted to PAX4 after some years? How much was your annual pay in the first year may I ask?

Thanks for sharing.

Yes. Standardized by MOE.

Unregistered Yes. Pay scale is the same across all polytechnics.

I reckon a senior academic at RP should be equivalent to a senior lecturer at the other polys. However, most first-time lecturers are not hired at PAX4.

Unregistered Is the payscale standard across all polys?
