You’re technically paid less because half your paycheck goes to student loans and interest.

Nope. Your education literally does not matter.

No. If anything you get paid less because you had to take time to get your masters.

Masters will do nothing for creative salaries. An auto mechanic that was brilliant creatively could join and end up making way more than a someone w a masters.

The masters degree didn't get me more money. But the program it came from did get me into the kind of agencies that let me make work good enough to triple my salary in a few years.

Thank you for taking the time to reply! That’s reassuring for sure 😌

I went to VCU and, by default, earned a master’s. If you’re a creative, it doesn’t matter. Actually, it’s the least important thing about that program.

Nah

May help you get short-listed, but not going to increase your salary.

Don't go to vcu for anything other than the network

@OP speaking from experience. The network has helped tremendously, I also have a fuckload of debt. The school didn't teach me how to write better at all, but I did meet a lot of good people.

Hi fishes! Nagarro declined the counter offer letter ₹33,00,000 + shares worth 4.5LPA

I've 6+ yrs experience (mobile dev.)

Nagarro offered 18LPA. Initially I told HR for 22 but he mentioned 18 into their internal portal to their senior so after clearing all interview rounds I got 18.

When I asked the HR, he told me to accept it for now and bring the counter offer letter so they can revise offer letter.

But now they declined. Weird.
