May not be able to advance.
Mostly people who do this job quit and move on to other jobs after 2-3 years.

If your definition of good pay is like 10k a month, I'll do it for life! Got lobang??

What pay is good pay? Would a person stop asking for pay increment even he has more than enough to live on for the rest of his life?

In this society, pay is used to judge the career prospect..what's the point of promotion without pay rise?

Except for the part of no career prospects, this job description fits the CEO job -- good pay, cannot advance (cos at the top already :D ) and yes, after 2-3yrs, they move on to another company.

If a good pay job, say $50K per month, but no career prospect (eg, stay as the same position for the rest of my life), I will take it :thumbsup:

Yah... S$50K a month is quite enough... even half of that... a pay cheque of S$25K per month for the rest of the life with no prospect... it is hard to resist.

good career prospects wont feed ur stomach. only money do.

just go for the one that offers a reasonable - good - excellent pay and stable environment. if compared to another job with good career advancement route but pay is low = no point isnt it?

in singapore, its the $$$$$$$ that counts.

Depends what you mean by a career. A career doesnt mean a job that lasts a lifetime.

From Wiki- a "Career is a term defined by the Oxford English Dictionary as an individual's "course or progress through life" ". A career therefore is composed of a series of events - you might call them jobs or other types of events.

FOr me, the more relevant qn is - would you take a job that has good pay but isnt meaningful to you, doesnt allow you to continue to learn, doesnt cause you to grow as a person?

how good is good pay?

how can a job with good pay has no prospect?

then either you have a very stupid boss, or you have extreme high expectations
Eg of good pay but no prospects:

- Drug carrier.......
- Bookie........
- Mamasan
- Professional Killer

Just to name a few........... :dunno:
