Government job or private job? If you’re still stuck in the century-old dilemma we’ve got your back on this. Here are some of the best-known reasons why government jobs are better than private jobs.
In private jobs, employees are exposed to the risk of layoffs and in recent year we’ve witnessed many such cases due to economic slowdown. Whereas, in the government sector, the employees enjoy job security as the job positions remain intact.
Pay structure is a major factor that needs to be taken into consideration when making a choice. To note here is that after the introduction of the 6th pay commission, the pay, which a government employee gets, is in par with the corporate sector so now a government employee enjoys the same monetary benefits as someone in a private company.
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.
Talking about promotional benefits government employees are entitled to promotions based on their service periods which means the longer you work, the higher are the promotional opportunities.
There are more Government holidays in Government jobs compared to the private sector. In addition, you also have a 5 day work week. To add to all this, you also have a certain amount of paid holidays in a year.
Other advantages include an inevitable salary increment, more facilities, less work stress, and other perks and benefits.
