I’d personally go with option 1 since my goal now is to have a good WLB. It honestly depends on what you prioritize the most. If it’s money and climbing the corporate rank, then option 2 is the clear winner. Both seem like solid options so congrats

Thank you A1. Def want some WLB, but I come from a firm where I have worked 16 hour days in regular basis, so 12 is awesome for me. I want WLB but also growth. So debating. Appreciate the feedback though

Both are sick offers, especially only 4 yoe...good work

Thank you SM1

Personally I’d say go where you like the work, especially since comp is higher and it’s a high visibility gig. If the fortune 5 company is not in your target industry than Google makes more sense, assuming you’d want to stay in tech

I am very grateful for being here with 3 yoe :) lot of hard work and ofc luck! Yeah maybe a good idea to keep in touch with the recruiters at Google to bounce back in the future

Cold take but visibility doesn’t matter when there isn’t upward mobility

You mean the fortune 5 option? Thank you!

Once PwC H1 transfer is done then should I leave Infosys within 2-3 months after joining or should I continue with Infosys and decline PwC offer?
