This logic is remarkable. You obviously don't know what median is and yet you can still be bothered to try to "explain". If there are 3 people we are talking about here with monthly incomes of $1000, $2000 and $1 million, the median here is still $2000 so please educate me as to how the median is affected by the top number? By your logic, the median in my example will be $500,000???
You think too highly of our civil servants. Most of them are in it for the money and stability, it is simply a job to the vast majority of them. There is however, also nothing wrong with this. Why should we expect others to go above and beyond simply because they work in the government?
Whether one can rise far or not, just like in any other jobs depends on your personal qualities, work ethics, political acumen and some luck. For the civil service, however there is this additional factor of whether one is a scholar and in the old boy's club. CCS was simply talking out of his ivory tower ass.
Median is $10K. Since the population size is even, there will be 2 numbers in the middle which is $2000 and $18000. The median is that case is the mean of the two numbers = ($2000 + $18000) / 2 = $10,000.
Anyway it is quite confirmed that unless u r AO, u r unlikely to rise to 10k working in civil service. I got many friends there so I know. They have high increment and fast promotion during early part of the career for all of them. But unless u show some ‘ability’ (even plp ability), u would reach your ceiling by 45. Then same salary till u retire.
