I completely agree with the proverb “The grass is always greener on the other side”.
If you meet a lot of people from different walks of life and you ask them to tell which job is better.
I bet, 90% Indians will tell you government job is Better.
If you further inquire about this. They’ll tell you about the benefits, which are ridiculous.
- Less stress: There exists no job in this world that doesn’t bring stress at one point of time. Even IAS & IPS officers are under immense pressure.
- Job security: If you are fired from a private firm. You can join any other firm later or sooner. But Govt. employees have to work in the same department & do not have any other source of income, if suspended or fired (this is more horrific)
- Infrastructure & working environment: You can enjoy office parties, trips etc only in private job. In government job, you’ll have to work there without good office infrastructure. Although other benefits like paid leaves, maternal leaves, holidays are better in govt. job.
- Selection Procedure: Now a days government exam selection procedure has become way too difficult. Exams like IBPS RRB, NET, AIIMS, SSC, Civil services are really tough. Also there is less transparency in some exams due to reservation & nepotism. So, for Open category candidates private jobs are more preferable.
