Job Security The most significant advantage of a Government job is “Job Security.” Private sectors are prone to layoffs, and we have very well witnessed such layoffs in the past during the time of recession. Whereas in government sectors, the situation of the employees more or less remained the same, and the job positions remained intact. 2.) Pay Structure Now the next significant factor would be of the pay structure, as it is a significant factor for any job-searching individual. After the introduction of the 6th pay commission, the pay, which a government employee gets, is in par with the corporate sector, and I don’t think that you would have anything to complain about here!! 3.) Working Hours The next factor an employee would scratch his head over is the number of working hours he/she has to input, and that is a big plus over the private sector. In government sector jobs, there are standard working hours, unlike private-sector ones, where an individual has to do overtime against one’s wishes (many times without any benefits as well). And if at all situations demands a government employee to do overtime, then he/she is entitled to attractive overtime benefits. 4.) Promotions Mobile-Desktop-Post-Middle-Fluid-Dec2017 An important factor, which any job seeker would take into account, is the promotional benefits. In government jobs, promotion is always based on the service period; hence, the longer you work, and higher are the promotional opportunities. It can be called an advantage as well as a disadvantage because for someone who is above average may not be able to grow faster than his average counterparts 5.) Benefits & Perks Next comes the bonus & perks a Government employee gets. For government jobs, many benefits such as retirement benefits, pension plans, and funds exist; moreover, benefits such as medical, housing, loans, childcare, etc. are also available. While some large private sector companies do offer such benefits, the majority of them don’t offer except for mandatory ones. Retirement becomes a factor and in the later part of our career and the retirement age of 60 years and, in some cases of 58 years, ensures the longevity of an individual’s career. 6.) Work Stress Government sector jobs are not at all stressful when compared to the posts in the private sector. The workload in government jobs, even if high, would have more than enough time frame to complete it in the best manner possible, unlike that of private-sector jobs. And here are some additional ones as well. 7.) More facilities – Government jobs provide more facilities like internet, telephone subscription, LTC. While the quality of the services is debatable, it is nonetheless an advantage 8.) Inevitable salary increment – In government jobs, your salary will increase, which will not correlate with your performance. While it is excellent if you are hard-working, increments happen whether you are not performed. So, for over-achievers, it may be a disadvantage, but if you are an average performer, this is great. 9.) More holidays – There are more Government holidays in Government jobs compared to the private sector. Also, you have a five day work week. To add to all this, you also have a certain amount of paid holidays in a year. 10.) Respect – If you are a government employee, then you will get respect from a subset of government employees and people because of your position and power. To conclude, the main benefit of working with government organizations is the reputation associated with it on the whole, as well as the numerous opportunities coming up in recent times due to the stellar growth of the Indian Economy. Also, I would like to highlight that Private Sector jobs do have their advantages as well, and in many cases, a Government job may not be right for an individual. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Featured image Select file Browse Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
