    Which is a better option if the salary package is same: a private job or a government job?

    If we are working in a private concern and get a good opportunity in a government sector but with the same package which was being received earlier, can we opt for that option as government job security is there along with other benefits? Or there will be growth in private concern?

    Hi..Certainly government job is a much better option than a private job if you are getting the same salary package..As you know that the job security is much higher in the govt sector than the private one as they dont terminate you for any and every reason under the sun..They only terminate if you genuinely do something wrong or harm the company in some way..So surely your job security is much more in govt sector and thus you dont have to wander from place to place everytime you get terminated from your company..

    Also one permanent job is certainly better than multiple ones as you dont have to adjust to a new work environment everytime you change a job..Also as you know Government sector provides many other benefits like Pension, more chances of growth , PF etc so these things are very useful to you in the long run ..You surely will have a brighter future if you work in a government firm..

    So just give your best to your work and you surely have a bright future ahead...In private concerns there is not much growth as your job keeps changing plus they make you do much more work than in the government sector and pay you less for the same..So certainly you dont get what you deserve..

    Good luck friend

    dear guest!!!
    your concern is right.
    in both sector ,private as well as government ,there are some advantages and some disadvantages.
    in private sector there is not job security while in government job there is job security.
    in private sector your growth rate is high enough than the government job.
    irrespective of all that there are more benifits in government sector that you will not get in private sector.
    so,my suggestion is to join the government sector if getting same package.
    thank you!!!

    If the salary package is same then no doubt that the government job is the better option for you.....
    In government job there are so many facilities which are not available in the private sector like you have job security , pension after the retirement , and number of allowances, and house also to live in till you were in the job.........
    Along with these you will have regular increment in your salary as well as in your post, you will have more number of leaves then the private sector...
    The working hour is also less so, its a job of comfort that everybody wants....
    All these facilities are not available in the private sector so, government sector is always better that than the private sector........

    In government job you have to work for a fix time while in private you may work overtime.thank you

    Advantages of Government Jobs:

    5. If you are at higher positions then more administrative power
    6. More relaxed, congenial working style
    7. Loan at low interest rates
    8. More holidays

    Disadvantages of Government Jobs:
    1. Less salary
    2. Less increments
    3. Routine kind of job leads to complacency
    4. Lesser opportunity to learn

    Advantages of Private Jobs:
    1. Talent recognition
    2. Performance based growth
    3. Higher salary
    4. More opportunity to learn
    5. Challenging work
    6. Better job satisfaction

    Disadvantages of Private Jobs:
    1. Less Job security
    2. Less social recognition
    3. Hectic work life

    5. More work stress

    You can consider all these factors and then choose the one that suits you more.

    Hello Aspirant,

    It depends upon the level of the pvt.company.Now there is not much difference in pvt.& govt. job because the pension policy in both sectors are the same.Also those who are interested in works & are capable to work,it may have better scope in pvt.job provided the level of the company is standard.

    Of course there may be less work pressure in the govt.sector,but at the same time there may be less prospects in the govt.sector.So if you have better future in pvt,job by means of frequent promotion & amenities,you can continue in pvt. job otherwise you can shift to govt. job.

    Hope you will take good decision with the above tips.

    Good luck.

    Re: Which is a better option if the salary package is same: a private job or a government job?

    Hello,

    There is a difference of working environment and salary package between goverment
    and private sectors. The only reason people stick to goverment sector is not salary but
    job security. Salary plays a big part in any job but job security is the ultimate part in any
    job. If the salary package is same beween goverment and privtae jobs then you should always
    chose the goverment job as it has job security compared ro private job. But if you have any
    particular preference in private job then it's up to you to take the call.

    Bye,

    Dear Friend

    It is not all about the salary there are lots of advantages of government jobs in comparison to private job .

    Some of the advantages are :

    >>You will have job security.

    >>Paid holidays and pension for lifetime.

    >>Your social status will get improved as people will consider you as a government official .

    >>You can avail several other allowances which are not possible in private jobs.

    >>More no of holidays in comparison to private job.

    There is one disadvantage that you will get less opportunity to learn but despite this disadvantage I will suggest you to work in government organisation.

    The best thing about a government job is its job security.
    you can not lose your job easily while in private sector if you just fall in concentration then you may lose your job.
    In government job you have to work for a fix time while in private you may work overtime.

    My opinion government job is better for private job.

    Thanks!!!

    See if you want job security than the government sector is always better than the private sector. But if you want to work hard and prove yourself and gain a fast growth in your career than you can go for private sector. The important thing in private sector is that you can only survive there and come out as a successful person if you can really work hard, many a times you will have to do overtime work with lot of stress involved in it. And if you will not be able to cope yourself with it than there are always chances that your job might be at risk. So if you want to do much work in a highly competitive environment than only you must opt for private sector.

    In government sector also there is growth but it has generally some particular time intervals to be eligible for that, if you can wait for things than there is no problem in joining government sector. Also you may get other benefits with your job which you won't get in private sector as in private sector there is always policy to get maximum from there employees by spending minimum.
