This is because you don't wanna leave TCS and your manager knows this. That's why he's not doing.

If you want promotion or hike you have to get an offer and ask tcs for retention else switch

You should have started about promotions by 7 years so that by 8th year you can pressurize him a little

This is the golden period of job switches in the entire decade I would say. People are getting crazzy salaries.

Don't beg for promotion for just 1-2 laks when outside you could easily get a hike of 10 lakhs on such low ctc.

I was in same boat, so I know.

Put down your papers today and within 3 months you can get at least 3-4 offers and can easily reach upto 17-18.

Thanks you so much... I just don't know where to start.. It's my first time switch.. Plus looking for something like WFH options due to family issues..

your ctc is too less. They are heavily underpaying you. Get an offer and move on. You should get ctc of at least 25 to 30 with your yoe. If you really want to stay there then get and offer and negotiate. But tcs won't pay more than 12 I feel to retain you. Still that is also very less for your exp.

Buddy why you are thinking this? Study hard and get and offer outside. I guess you started your carrer in tcs.not sure what are your bands but doesnt look like tcs will give you promotion before 9+ years so better to switch. In promotioj u will get 15% max but in switch easily you will get 100%

Not sure. I am reading it correctly. 8 years and only 5 something lacs.. did you always get a C band during appraisals?? May be D in between?

Then. I would suggest start looking for a job as I am not sure when you will get your next promotion. Also the salary of yours is too low .

Buddy, don't hesitate much. Prepare hard for 2 weeks, put down papers and you will get offers by the end of notice period.
Current CTC of yours is way too low and don't expect TCS to give anything much.

What's ur skill bro ?

If you need referral let me know

Switch. Don't waste time

Buddy, please switch. You can really get much much better salary for your yoe. You are highly underpaid. I believe any company in your domain will give you min 15 lpa. Go for it don't stay any longer. All the best.

Switch switch, you will definitely get a good one for your YOE.

What's AST ?

Try to get another job and put resignation. They can provide some retention Offer if your team pushes.
