I like to have a diversified job which also includes field postings. I perceive that OMG falls short of such expectations. have taken my attempt of 2013 and praying that this O is replaced by D in that

That's cool to know that we are in same Cadre. In Sha Allah we will meet in October 2013 at CSA .
sir, everything happens for good. believe me, me too wrote omg as my 6th priority, but at that time i didn't know much about it. my papers too went well and i was much sure about getting allocated in anyone of my top 3 priorities, but unfortunately my british history papers got punished severely.. this mishap made me fall to omg, after this i did some home work and came to know about OMG, and trust me, i am 100 % satisfied with it, rather i thank God for punishing my British History... haha, its like blessing in disguise

it is an awesome group for married women because in this group you don't have much to worry about and after your working hours you are totally free, you can enjoy your holidays with your family + you can have 1 permanent address (as no transfers from city to city). even in case of deputation, you stay in one place for 3 to 5 years. thats great!

as far as your 2nd question is concerned, according to best of my knowledge, you have to start your career in islamabad whatsoever. but afterwards, you can get posted to punjab secretariat in Lahore, or even in other public firms based in Lahore. Females get much relaxation in this regard.

Well dear, I placed MLCG and CTG above OMG and PAAS, thinking that if I fall in the merit bracket of the latter two, I will automatically make it into the either of the former groups. But 1 seat of MLCG and no seat in CTG made my plans futile and I got into OMG.

I agree. That's destiny. I am reasonably satisfied with OMG after I have come to know about its details and positives. However, personal preferences of an individual cannot be ignored. I personally like to work in a place where I can take decisions independently and be in the lead, such as PAS or PSP (particularly when they are in field).

Hence, I believe that In Sha Allah my group gets changed in 2013 (I will be considering 7 or 8 groups only), I might switch. But if destiny has reserved OMG for me, then OMG it is .

I think ladies can be transferred to the place where their husbands are based, owing to the wedlock policy.

OMG is a very good in terms of promotion and horizontal mobility.

First of all, every OMG officer is posted in the secretariat initially as Section Officer but there are a number of autonomous bodies/attached departments in which one can go on deputation. One can even get posted in provinces on deputation for 3 years which is also extendable for further 2 years. In provinces one can be posted on DMG seat as well. Moreover, there are some ministries like the Human Rights Ministry and Ministry of Industries in which you can get posted in cities like Lahore, Karachi, Peshawar and Quetta. Female officers can also enjoy the facility of getting posting in home towns as rules allow that.

Another good point is that OMG officers get the maximum chances to avail foreign trainings and degree programs. OMG officers are also posted on deputation in Pakistani embassies/ foreign missions abroad.

Furthermore, the donor agencies and international financial institutions like UN, ADB, Wolrd Bank and USAID hire OMG officers to run their secretariats, projects and programs in Pakistan and they offer a very good pay package.

Another great feature of OMG is that promotion is fastest among all the other occupational groups. There is great shortage of officers in the secretariat so chances of promotions are also bright. We can also be posted in 18th scale on acting charge easily because there's no one above. I'm currently working as a Deputy Director in an autonomous body which is a grade 18 post. Our seniors from the 27th common got the 19th scale in just 9 years which is impossible in other occupational groups.

Some negative points are that OMG officers don't get a car or house immediately. Getting a house allotted in Islamabad is next to impossible unless and until you have good connections in bureaucracy or political backing. The senior officials in secretariat possess all these facilities.

Another problem which OMG officers appointed through competitive exams face is that we have to fight promotees who qualify the promotional exam and join OMG. These people affect our seniority. Another category of people are the ones who come from other departments on deputation and get themselves regularised in OMG.

But overall OMG officers are the ones who run not only the secretariat but also have the chance to formulate policies from their desks.

Well, in these days of idleness, I also came across few other positives of OMG told by a person in this Cadre.

In Pakistan, one is normally posted in 6 big cities. Means Lahore, Islamabad, Karachi, Quetta, Peshawar and Muzaffarabad (in case of AJK Secretariat).

Plus, one can find enough time for family too. Timings are 80 to 40 with two days off and under normal circumstances, remain that way.

So I think for a family oriented person, this advantage is very valuable.

That DMG friend from 41st CTP should nt worry abt OMG. He has miscalculated .. Appointments in OMG is made coz OMG is largest grup in terms of its strength of employees. This lateral entry has been cancelled. And this Lateral Entry is not made so..People from other dept are inducted for a specified short term. not permanently.
Lateral Entry is made because of shortage of officers in federal Secretariat. OMG recruitments had remained halted for a decade. But not so now. I have respect for Saladin who is quite junior to me. But let me state one thing. U dont seem satisfied with OMG. better u quit.U should not discourage others with ur Meager knowledge.

Avoid regular use of "Netspeak" or other "cute" grammar or spelling (For example: writing "R U a woman?" instead of "Are You a woman?").

Read and abide by the Forum Rules and Policies.

Those OMG officers who have recently joined this group and are confused about its scope future, they are recommended to join OMG/Secretarait Group page at FB. It has even 22 grade officers as its members and it is like a family where your all queries could be answered by mature and experienced seniors.

Nice info, can you please tell me what kind of work is usually done in OMG. well the name shows office work but is it just about huge number of files with no interesting things or what ?
Secondly what kind of foreign training programs are offered to OMG ?
