Slide into my DM , Let’s Discuss

Decent reviews on Glassdoor, albeit not many. Hope you get some better insight from CFO1

That's a pretty great offer on a comp side...but if you value autonomy, it won't be worth it - even if the company is great. Why are they not willing to give you a similar title to what you have now?

I am doubting on the numbers offered by the recruiter. It’s too high . Please get an official confirmation from the firm . If the position is at tier 1 cities with daily reporting to office , this could be 50% true

Hi, I have an offer from GlobalLogic for Senior QE Manager. They are offering ₹36 lpa fixed + ₹4 lpa bonus (which is paid out 100%) = approx ₹40.5 lpa. I have my HR round scheduled with Morgan Stanley this week for Vice President QA position (designation is equivalent to Senior QA Manager). I'm thinking of quoting ₹43 lpa base (comes to approx. ₹47 lpa including PF etc.). Would this be a reasonable ask? Pls comment. YOE 17 in Quality Engineering (Java/Selenium/Test Management). Thanks.


Husband and I can’t agree on budget for our first home. HHI of $325k, not including bonus. Current rent is $2500 and saving between $8-10k/mo. No debt other than a $400/mo car loan that will be paid off soon. He’s uncomfortable with a $5k/mo mortgage and thinks it’s stretching; I think it’s very reasonable. Thoughts?

I am a third year and I set really strict boundaries. I make it a practice to not worry about work. I’m always available when I need to be but I NEVER ask for work and I never hit billables (although I’m at a firm w guaranteed bonus). Even when I’m at 0 hours for a week straight I won’t ask for work. Does anyone else do this? FWIW I’ve gotten good reviews/like the people I work w and I think they like me.

As I prepared to file my notice, the partner of the firm called me and asked me to stay. They’re willing to promote me mid year in December and increase salary next year in August. The current offer I have gives 60% pay increase and Partner still can’t match that offer after promotion. Firm leadership says here I have potential to be a partner in 8 years and talk about all the leadership support I have rn which is fair. Is this one of their tactics to make me stay or should I just leave…
