Curious... I seem to miss the early adopter sales waves at tech companies where AEs are making 7 figures. AWS, Snowflake, Google. Where’s the next big wave?

Hi everyone, I'm comparing two offers from Accenture and Cognizant. Could you help me figure out some of these questions: 1. At 5 YOE, what kind of package can I expect? Current offers: Accenture (12LPA fixed, 2.5L variable), Cognizant (14.3LPA fixed, 45K variable) 2. Nature of work - What kind of work can I expect from these companies? 3. would I get the opp to use any authoring Tools? 4. Work life balance - which is better? 5. Increments - avg % hike? 6. Culture - which is better?

Fishes, I'm worried 😟
I have 1.5 YoE, joined as campus hire. Unfortunately didn't get chance to pick preferred org/tech stack. Had to work in Cloud Ops for 1 year, and now in legacy app with very old stack of Java, Perl and internal old Javascript.
Should I start afresh in a new company for SDE-1, or wait and apply for SDE-2 opportunities?
Should I look for alternate profiles like Analyst?
Would shifting to a service based company be wise?
Do companies care about previous tech stack?
