Happens to many of us OP. Hope it wasn't too rough this time. Last time I thought I heard gunshots and hit the floor in the hotel (in the Middle East). Turned out to be a lot of unanticipated fireworks. My team had a good laugh about it.

Dear all,

How's it like working for PwC India as SAP Functional Senior Associate?
I have a 5.3y work ex with ACN, as a FSCM consultant (L10 currently, was assured of a L9 effective March, but declined due to growing poor culture within ACN).
Got an offer from PwC India
Current TC: 9.5 LPA.
PwC Offered TC: 19 LPA.
IBM Offered Fixed: 17 LPA
IBM would be a smooth drive, but skeptical to join PwC given the WLB issues, as a lot of folks say.

Any thoughts, comments would be really helpful!
