  • Assigning the tangga gaji is the within the power of the PSC under our Constitution. But our government institutions has completely corrupted by UMNO and BTN, the PSC should be called to justify their actions.

  • To most of us in the private sector, we will most likely consider working experience in civil service is irrelevant as most of them are having wrong mentality and working attitude. They are the spoiled group of people with low productivity. One private sector workers can handle at least 3 civil servants jobs.

  • I have 2 suggestions for this problem. 1. Make sure that no two members f the same family work in the same department. Worse if one is holding a higher position, This is very common in universities and GLCs, where head wants his way. 2. Stop all heads of departments from indulging into Whats Apps Islamic 'doe' circulation to members of the staff and public. Why must office time be used for this kind of activities, which boarders into fear mongering and false teaching.

  • Please for the love of God sack the deadwood and create a civil service that is professional and just does the job given by any government of the day. This is a good time to reduce the bloated force and get rid of the aunties in there who do MLM selling during office hours!

  • Perhaps some heads should roll in PSD for insubordination. Unless there is casualty, PSD and PSC will continue to take matters into their own hands
