There are many misconceptions about this group.In the hindsight,I would say that this group should be 6th,7th on the candidates'preference list.It offers excellent options for horizontal mobility.OMG people can be posted on a variety of posts ranging from Section Officer,Assistant Director of a department to section officer/under-secretary in a Pakistani mission abroad.Promotion prospects are much better than majority of service groups.I would say even better than DMG and far better than PSP,FSP,PCS etc..If one has the desire to function at the key posts such as provincial and federal secretary, OMG offers a strong enough chance to be considered seriously.

My dear Hamza please don't misguide the students. OMG is a good group but it has no match with DMG, PSP and FSP. As far as promotions are concerned, OMG has no match with DMG. DMG is the king of all the service groups.
Had I been an aspirant today, I would have even preferred PMS over OMG.

Being an insider I know what I am talking about.I never said prefer it over DMG or PSP,I just said that it should be considered at 6th or 7th on candidates' preferences.

Both are separate groups one is Office Management Group and the other is District Management Group now renamed as Pakistan Administrative Service (PAS). OMG is a desk job whereas DMG/PAS is a field service specially in the initial stages. Secondly, OMG is based in Federal Secretariat and DMG is across the country.
