Hey EPAMMERS , a good news to all EPAM Anywhere new joiners who are yet to join.

The only constraint with EPAM Anywhere is the bench pay policy. We don't get fixed salary while on bench.

New joiners have an option to opt for fixed pay or flexible pay. Do reach out to HR and get your salary structure revised.

NOTE: While revising from flexible to fixed pay your actual CTC will be reduced. In my case Flexible pay was X and now fixed pay is X-1.8LPA.

Would it be stupid to try to get an MBA at a mid-tier school (think Villanova) to try to pivot out of corporate accounting or should I try to upskill and network my way into a role in one of these areas? I feel like it’s too soon to rotate within the company, so an MBA could help buy time.
