Here’s one disclaimer: I love Goody Feed. Goody Feed is bae. Boss is handsome, colleagues are fun and the air-conditioner never breaks down.
Everything here is perfect. If there’s a personification of utopia, it would be 10 Bukit Batok Crescent #09-07 (that’s our office address, please send us some oranges, thank you very much).
Now that I’ve covered my ass, here’s the disturbing (or unsurprising) fact: according to a study of more than 45,000 employees in Singapore, only 67% of them think that their company is a good place to work in.
The other 33% wouldn’t advocate their companies as “good”.
In other words, if there are ten people in your department now, three of them are dragging their ass to work every day because they hate the company.
(Okay, “hate” might be too strong a word but you get the gist)
In comparison, in the whole of Asia, only 24% think that their companies aren’t a good place to work in.
Though I’ve got to admit that there’s a possibility of us Singaporeans having the trait of complaining about anything and everything, but anyways.
That isn’t all. Singapore workers also felt that they’re underpaid.
46% of Singapore Workers Felt That They’re Underpaid
Okay, I thought this would be 100%, but I guess I’m living in my own fantasy world: 54% (a whopping figure IMHO) of Singapore workers apparently think that they’re paid fairly, which means 46% of us feel that we’re underpaid.
That means almost half of your colleagues feel that they’re paid fairly. Gotta wonder whether it’s those people with their own office rooms #totallynotsayingmyboss

On the other hand, the difference for this pay issue isn’t large in comparison with Asia and the world in general: 41% of workers in APAC felt they’re not paid fairly and 44% of global workers feel the same way.
So at least we all have something in common.
Of course this would lead to the next question: how much are Singapore workers paid?
(And why the heck do people think they’re paid fairly?)
Average Pay for Singaporeans / PRs
According to the latest MOM figures, the median gross monthly pay, which includes CPF, is $4,232. This number exclude foreign workers and, of course, NSFs.
I don’t think I need to remind you that different industries have different median pay, so take this with a pinch of salt.
After all, I think I would be happy AF with a pay of $4,232, while my boss might think that it’s peanuts.
In any case, at least now you learn something new: there are human beings who think they’re paid fairly.
(Sorry still can’t believe that)

The Coca-Cola Plus Coffee has arrived in Singapore, and let’s just say that the taste is very subjective: one of us thinks it’s like coffee candy, one of us thinks it’s like carbonated dark chocolate milk and one of us think it’s like Vanilla Coke. However, none of us thinks that it’s worth a second try, simply because we’ll all rather have Coke and coffee separately.
