Government vs. Private Job

Asssalama Lykum!
Hope everyone is fine and doing good.
I want to ask that what do you guys think about government jobs and private jobs. Which are the merits demerits of both. It will be good if you talk from Graphic Design/Media point of view.
Let's start the discuss!

Government Jobs - More Benefits, Pensions, Rozana ka jaib Kharch (If in Good Department), Fixed Holidays (In the end of year and monthly) etc

Private Jobs - Kutta Khuwari (unless on high post), Pension (Optional Third party like EOBI), No Jaib Kharch, They can ask you to come on Holidays too and you can't do anything about it.

Cons:

govt job: much less pay, no bonuses, billion years for promotion, stuck in same situation for ever.. could be transferred to any city any place.

I started my career with private, keep talking to friends who are into government. Both kinds are a bit of tradeoff in one aspect or other.

Private Job Pros

- Good Salary (not always the case)

- More chances of growth and get benefits

- Able to switch jobs to avoid monotony

- Diverse experience, more exposure, you end up with good profile.

- Better work environment

Private Job Cons

- Less job security

- Sometimes pay may not be more than what govt gives

- Too much workload (only if you are not paid good enough)

- Bad work life balance (some companies, big or small)

- Too much accountability (On organizational level, it's good, on personal level, it's bad)

Government Job Pros

- Stable job for whole life

- Less work, more free time and leaves

- Little accountability (On organizational level, it's bad, on personal level, it's good)

- Good pay structure (better than private, except for big private companies)

- Social acceptance is better, in Pakistan you either need to be filthy rich or be afsar to live a life of limelight

Government Job Cons

- Little and slow growth

- Too much politics and leg pulling

- Little or zero chances of career mobility (cannot switch easily as your govt experience seldom counts)

- Benefits can be limited (depends on organization)

- Monotony, less work is blessing and bad at same time

Government Job Cons

^best.

Jobs either private/Gov are not good for people who have talent do your own business or service providing. however give job to other people who have average skills and train them to create more jobs.

Business isn't just about talent. It's about opportunity, luck and resources too. Not every talented person can have opportunity, resources to do so. Although one can create an opportunity, resources are not going to be guaranteed.

And even if one has to do business, I believe, one should at least work before starting own thing. Helps greatly in understanding what employees think and want

seems ok if job done for training course of slavery and salary, but should nt be considered as career ladder because most of the people constantly switching to get acquainted with a group or company aligned to their potential and occasionally standing on crossroad of life. every corporate/institution have their own set policies and servants have to follow these despite president of country or company.

Governoment job

Pros:

Easily could make extra money most commonly known as haram di kamai.

You don't have to reach at time or work late no work pressure either

People will call you sarkari affsar and they will come to you for their b forum approvals and stamps.

If you are at some high position then free haj every year

Cons:

You have to polish your highers all the time for promotions and to avoid transfer.

Not so friendly environment.

To get gov job you need cash in hand rather than resume

Private job

Pros:

High pays

Friendly environment plus most firms has women employees.

Get promotions based on your experience and talent no balls polishing requires.

Cons:

Could get in lot of work pressure and late hours work

Sexual harassment if you are good looking either man or woman

Working hours upto 10 hours

In my opinion gov job is the winner here that's why people are ready to pay to get the gov job..

Post kar CHAWLAAN na maar lakar dy BAANDAR!

1 benefit of Govt. job is going always but private jobs we did not when companies give resignation
