I would think about why you're trying to make that jump...like it can be a lot more interesting, but obviously not as straightforward as audit and often working with pretty tough people. Why do you think you're intersted in equity research?

The pay seems well and find the subject intellectually stimulating. You analyze and evaluate financial data, market trends, and company performance to make informed investment decisions. Sounds like something that will give me the chance to understand various industries which can lead to more lucrative opportunities within the financial services space.

Hey sharks, I need some help with your thoughts

Product owner role
Airbus vs VMware
Fixed is same in both, Airbus is paying higher variable pay amount and hence higher ctc.

I am also in the middle of interviews with some other firms but for now I have these 2 offers. Which do you think would be right considering WLB, opportunities and hike/growth. If someone from VMware can mention what's happening within the firm with respect to Broadcom acquisition, that will be helpful
