Comparing to the private sector, the government sector has more benefits packages.

Job Security: Job stability is a major perk as public sector organizations have the stability of government-. Unlike the private sector, there is no sudden termination of the employees, and companies can never go out of business.

Flexibility: The Government sector is characterized by its flexible working hours since they are standard. As a result, the ‘work-life balance’ approach is well established within working in the government.

Promotions: The longer you work, the higher promotional opportunities you get. Promotional benefits are inevitable in the public sector, and it depends on the service period.

Salary Increment: With no correspondence to the performance, the salary increment is inevitable in government jobs.

More Holidays: There are more holidays in the government to the private sector.

Training: All staff is required to enhance their skills set by joining training programs. Investment in staff members is a priority.

Inevitable Pension Scheme: Having a guaranteed pension is a significant advantage within your employment in government bodies.

Salary packages include many compensations: Annual tax-free salary, free annual flight tickets to and from your country, furnished accommodation or allowance, transportation allowance, health insurance, visa expenses (for expatriates), year-end bonus, and annual vacation time of 30 days.
