    Long Term Benefits of Public sector Jobs

    A lot of questions and doubts arise in the minds of individuals when they have to choose between the public and private enterprises for making a career. Recently, especially after recession, public sector enterprises have become preferable over the other major private players in many respects. People always knew that the Indian government is far better than every private/corporate players when it comes to job security. One major reason to reinforce this opinion is the high pay /job cuts during the recession times. The government jobs have always been connected with the relatively lesser monetary benefits. However, with the 6th pay commission, the situation related to public sector jobs benefits has also been changed.

    Public sector Versus Private sector jobs

    Many people were more inclined towards the private sector jobs in terms of MNCs; working in such firms was expected to be a prestige issue. But on the other hand, now majority of people, even the younger generation believes the other way round. Apart from the security factor there are many other benefits too.

    Advantages of Public Sector jobs
    • Job Security – The main factor which favours government jobs is the security associated with it . Private sectors are subjected to layoffs which have been witnessed during the time of recession , where as in government sectors the situation of job position of an individual will not have any kind of changes. The govt sector plans huge projects and takes more time to implement them. Hence there are no issues with the security as they cannot go bankrupt or insolvent in any ways.
    • Pay Structure – Another significant factor would be that of the pay structure which have major differences from private sector. The remuneration which a government employee gets will be in par with the corporate sector especially after the 6th pay commission. Any employee will not have any reason to complain about .
    • Wok Hours- The working hours may be some what different from their counterparts .There may be standard working hours .There are no over times etc when compared from private sectors. If over times are done , they are entitled to overtime benefits
    • Benefits –Many benefits such as retirement benefits , pension plans, and PF exist in public sector too. Apart from these other benefits such as medical , housing , loan , childcare etc can also be availed.
    • Promotional benefits – In government enterprises, the promotion is always based on the service period not on meritocracy. Hence the longer you work with the company , higher are your promotional opportunities.
    • Retirement benefits – In government sectors , the retirement age is 60 ys , in some cases of state enterprises being 58 .Hence you have a longer time to get associated with the company as well as produce more results.

    Other minor benefits of government sector jobs
    • The government job is not stressful .
    • Compared to private sector , the latter , aims at maximum results and provide environment also but wont give pressure for that.
    • The Indian economy is growing in all respects hence there are lot of vacancies coming up every time in every area , hence no job stagnation.
    • The government will allow you to become a part of several professional organizations and hence this will help develop your career. You will have several ways to develop a career path for yourself.
    • The work load in government even if high will have time fame to complete it the best manner as that of private enterprises where there will huge workload.
    • The appraisal systems will be more or less based on the work completed

    The main benefits of working with government run organization is the reputation associated with it on a whole as well as the numerous opportunities available in this field. The country is advancing so quickly and several industries are growing every day. Hence the scope and the need for people in various sections will keep on increasing.

    Re: Long Term Benefits of Public sector Jobs

    The most important benefit of an government job is that the working hours are defined and there is no need of working more than that and that means you can spend more time with your family and friend which is not the case with the private sector jobs were rarely you will find an person who can say that he spends ample time with there family ,and for any one i think this advantage should be more than enough to choose an government job over an private job even if the salary is less in government job when compared to an private job ,also another important advantage is the job security which seldom exists in the private sector ,in an government job unless and until you do some thing really out of the law there is no way that you can be romoved from the job and also you are the king of your area of work or what ever the work that comes under your work flow and i think this is the one of the reasons why the government officers in our country have become so ineffecient

    With the changing market, now public jobs are no longer so easy to get and do.
    Most of public/govt departments like electricity are getting privatized.

    But still there are few benefits associated with public sector jobs.
    1. Job security. there is little chance of department being closed.
    2. Pension - though few departments stopped this
    3. 5 day work
    4. Easy promotions

    Perceived advantages of a public sector career
    • Benefits often differ among public and private sector employees as well.
    • One of the primary benefits that public sector employees tend to have that the private sector employee may not is that of job security.
    • Long-term stable employment is typical in public sector jobs, although economic crises can lead to the elimination of these jobs, just as it can in the public sector. Government-benefit plans are often recognized as being far more comprehensive than those you can obtain in the public sector. This too only applies in some industries, though, as some private sector jobs can also come with substantial health benefits and retirement packages.

    Re: Long Term Benefits of Public sector Jobs

    As a Recruitment specialist looking to attract individuals into public sector opportunities, I would like to ascertain what you consider the benefits to be as an employee working within the public sector vs. the private sector.

    Job security used to be one with a guaranteed Pension, retiring after 40 years of service woth probably a golden wrist watch. I supposed times have changed. That said the opportunity to develop your skills in very supportive yet laid back environment that does not necessarily have the cut throat competition of the private sector. Various individuals with a background in Compliance as well as Tax have gone on to make a name in the private sector following a stint in the public sector............. that has to be a plus.

    Atmosphere is more relaxed as focus is on service, not profit.
    Benefits packages tend to be better (health plans, vacation time, etc.)
    More open to flexible schedules (though this is changing in private sector)
    More opportunities for professional development.

    Opinions from fourteen years in higher ed and 3+ in municipal government.

    I think the relative stability is the huge selling point for me right now. After watching so many people lose their retirement and such seemingly stable, huge institutions fall in the private sector, there is something very comforting about government employment. On the other hand, as exemplified by health care reform, it's a time of great change and possibility in government which can attract bright people with various social and intellectual interests. So to me it's the best of both worlds right now, stability and challenge.

    1.The public sector has all of our money.
    2. Your boss just got out of 8th grade.
    3. You can't be fired no matter what you do.
    4. The laws that you pass don't apply to you.
    Do you need more?
    Clarification added December 2, 2009:
    You currently are paid much better in the public sector. People just repeat old sayings instead of reading the news.
    Clarification added December 3, 2009:
    Congress has an approval rating of 17 percent. It is the same or lower for bureaucrats.

    -Better & clear career path.
    - Intrinsic reward program.
    - Job Rotation & Enrichment.
    - Training & Development.
    - Liberty in taking decisions.
    and much more....
