Private job vs Government job

private job vs government job

Private job:

Pros of Private job:

  • Private employees will be recognized for their hard work. Companies like to have employees who put effort and work hard. So, there will be incentives and promotions in return for hard work.
  • If we do not like the job, we can easily quit and join another job as per our requirement. It is very difficult to switch from one government job to another.
  • There will be ample opportunities for career growth.

Cons of Private job:

  • In most cases, private employees can be removed from the job in an instant without prior notice.
  • Some companies make their employees work like slaves. That results in not having enough time for personal lives.

Government job:

Pros of a Government job:

  • It is not that easy to remove a government employee from his/her job. So, comparatively government job offers more job security.
  • For most of the government jobs, there will be fixed timings. That gives employees enough time for personal life.
  • Apart from salary, there are many other benefits like maternity leaves, child care allowances etc. for government employees.
  • People give respect to government employees much more than private employees. This is true, especially in India.
  • Government job holders get increments continuously even if they do not work hard.

Both Private and government jobs have their own advantages and disadvantages. Some people are comfortable with the job security provided by government jobs and some others like the recognition provided by private jobs.

  1. i prefer gov. job over private job.
    And one advantage of gov. job over private job is also that the salary is fix , but it can fluctuate in private jobs like if u take more leaves or like in pandemic some
    private employees are getting less salary.

    1. It’s Depand on which industry you are because as you in IT industry your salary will be increase on the basis of experience . But in govt job Everytime the papaer is out one vaccancy is completed in 4 -5 years .
      Firstly prepare 1 to 2 year for govt job . Than your paper will clear and their is no-assurity that your paper will leak or not . If leak than again wait for govt decision to re-take the papaer
      After 1 year than main-exam will be held and than interview ..
      All the process will clear under 4 to 5 years like SSC-EXAM , RPSC , etc

      But in private if you started working once as your experience increase your salary incease

      In govt once salary will be constant but in private it will have no-limit

      “In my opinion Private Sector is Best “

  2. In my point of view Private jobs are good because in government job not paying that much of salary
